Bone in the Throat, a real book by Anthony Bourdain, is getting a big screen adaptation. Originally, as the AV Club gently puts it, "a mob caper about the criminal goings-on in a Little Italy restaurant and the street-smart sous chef caught in between who is named 'Tommy' instead of 'Tony,' in a moment of humility for Bourdain," the novel will lose some of its mob-ness, and all of its New York–ness, to a London reset.
