  1. The comment above from a post over six years ago turns out to be prophetic. Dave McIntyre has a piece in tomorrow's WashPo about a recent Peter Chang Chinese New Years dinner he attended, a preparation for the upcoming Beard House dinner, pairing Chang's dishes with Virginia wines from Jefferson Vinyards. http://www.washingto...LrNQ_story.html In his article McIntyre makes mention of an upcoming movie about the Chang saga. Thus, the cat has now been let out of the bag, so I feel at last it is appropriate to share some information. Forgive me if the following seems hedged -- it is. There indeed is a movie in the works. A group of film people saw potential in the story told by Calvin Trillin in his New Yorker article, and pitched the idea to one of the major studios. The folks at the studio agreed, and the project is in the very early stages. These are serious people. My wife and I had the opportunity, a couple of months ago, to meet several of the parties involved at Chang's place in Atlanta, where Chang treated us to a banquet the likes of which I had never imagined. The group, all of whom flew in just for the meal, were all great people and totally down to earth (though I will admit that names like "Meryl" occasionally casually popped into the conversation, and no, no one by that name was there). While nothing is certain, and I am learning how long these sorts of projects take to come to fruition, this does look like a go. I don't know much at this stage about who will be doing what, except that the screenwriter, an individual who has achieved the highest recognition of the industry, has been named and is at work. It's just so sad that Stephen Banker isn't here to share in this. It was his efforts that really made this happen. I'll follow up when I can.
