Food blogging becomes a movie

Somehow I think I never got around to reading anything of Julie Powell's blog, The Julie/Julia Project, which she started in August 2002 as an attempt to reproduce all the recipes in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I heard about the blog, and meant to read it, but somehow found other cooking blogs and never got back to it.

Julie Powell went on to make a book out of her story: Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen (on sale right now at Amazon). And now it is becoming a movie. Screenplay by Nora Ephron, who also directs and produces, and Julie is played by Amy Adams and Julia Child by....Meryl Streep! Apparently the movie will also tell the story of Julia's years in France, with Stanley Tucci playing her husband Paul. Julie & Julia, 2009.

Hmmm. Another blog leads to a huge success. There may be something in this thing.....
