Bill Buford's Heat to be made a movie?

It's a fun book... one I really enjoyed... but I'm not sure I see it as a movie. The best parts of the book were all the little details about work in a high end kitchen and butcher shop... not so much Bill Buford's life, or details about Mario Batali and Dario Cecchini... at least IMHO. It seems a movie would have to be about the personalities, and I don't see how that could be all that good when they're all alive and have access to lawyers.
