Superfans of canceled series “Bored To Death” thought the news couldn’t get any better when it was announced last week that a movie based on the series is officially in development at HBO -- but it has! Now, THR reports that creator Jonathan Ames and star Jason Schwartzman are collaborating on another separate project, having optioned the rights to Bernard Malamud’s collection of short stories “Pictures of Fidelman,” with plans to co-write an adaptation starring Schwartzman. The script will center on Arthur Fidelman, a hapless art student who travels to Rome in the mid-twentieth century. Sounds about right for Schwartzman, he being the poster-child for privileged melancholia.
