Hollywood has spent nearly 30 years sniffing around 'A Confederacy of Dunces,' the posthumously published novel by John Kennedy Toole about an obese, boasting, blustering crank named Ignatius Reilly his unlikely adventures in the French District of New Orleans. John Belushi, John Candy, Divine, Chris Farley, and Philip Seymour Hoffman have all taken aim at the project, and Will Ferrell's version -- with Steven Soderbergh behind the camera -- got as far as a staged reading before running aground for mysterious reasons. Now, Zach Galifianakis has tossed his proverbial hunting cap into the ring, telling writer Andy Borowitz at a New Yorker Festival event last night in New York, "I've read two books in my life, and I'd like to do 'Confederacy of Dunces' -- which will never happen."
