    Just wondering if anyone else saw this in the tabloids over the weekend.

    Disney/Miramax are looking to purchase the Movie Rights to the story of Jamies Kitchen, where 15 young wasters are turned into chefs!!!

    Is that for real Dest? I can't believe they want to do that and Brad Pitt? Why don't they just use Jamie?

    but isn't Mr Pitt already linked to David Fincher's prospective adaptation of chef/crime novelist Anthony Bourdain's book, the apparently excellent "Kitchen Confidential"? A sort-of-autobiographical tome which I understand to be a heady mix of Hunter Thompson/ Irvine Welsh-style bad behaviour and really fine upscale New York cuisine, with lashings of sex, drugs and bad behaviour.

    Getting back to the notion of a filmic version of "Jamie's Kitchen", although it sounds unlikely, it probably has all the elements that a studio could want for a feel-good, triumph-over-adversity style blockbuster.

    There's a ethnically-mixed, photogenic cast of plucky, hard-knock life kids, a 'street', hip young chef who doesn't play by the rules, loads of good intentions and scope for conflict. There is the profoundly irritating Jamie Oliver factor to take into consideration, but you can't have everything I guess...

    It practically writes itself, worryingly enough: Why do I get the sense that this horrible idea already has those dreaded words, "Joel Schumacher" written all over it.

    as best I know its true.

    The innitial interest was to set it in LA with the 15 candidates being gangmembers and homies, that have to go through training to become leading chefs and prepare and serve a meal at a presidential banquet...


    I think it was in the Mail on saturday or sunday.

    I know its not gospel just because its in the press but it was based on interview material with Jamie for the Parkinson show.

    Whilst the prospect of Brad Pitt playing Jamie is purely speculative there have been serious offers of interest to purchase the movie rights to the 'jamies kitchen concept' with sums of approx. £2million being mentioned.

    Apprently the staff in Jamies office thought it was a wind up when they got a phone call one day asking to buy the movie rights, but it turned out to be for real.

    There's no truth in the rumours that Harrison Ford will be playing the part of Keith Floyd in his next series either ;)

    Coming soon - Jennifer Garner is Delia Smith in Michael Bay's "How to Cook, Vol.1 - The Movie" .

    You've seen her kick ass every week, taking on the lethal netherworld of counter-intelligence and deadly spies, now watch her take on the most dangerous mission of all...

    ...correctly boiling an egg and making some nicely toasted soldiers (Classified 18 for language, violence and improper use of a spatula).

    Come on, it's got to better than another Bad Boys sequel...
