Confederacy of Dunces

A Confederacy of Dunces has been sitting on the shelf for 5 years, I finally read it. As all the reviewers note, this book is absolutely hilarious. Ignatius is an amazing character, I was left wanting more — I’ve been unwilling to start another book because I want to keep the characters fresh in my mind. I thought the ending was a little anticlimactic but how would you end this spiral of chaos?

Is the movie really getting made? Will Ferrell would be awesome in the role but after a flurry of news last year, all the movie sites seem silent about the movie.
