Did David Foster Wallace's death make an Infinite Jest movie more likely? It turns out Foster Wallace was working on the script for a movie adaptation as recently as last year, along with Sam Jones, who made the Wilco documentary I Am Trying To Break Your Heart. Filmsite Chud is speculating that all of the attention Foster Wallace is getting, thanks to his glowing obits, could jumpstart the movie. I actually think it could work quite well as a film, if you reimagined it as a sort of absurdist spy comedy about tennis. [Chud]
