Deadline is reporting that a John Krasinski / Aaron Sorkin miniseries on Hollywood's Chateau Marmont is back in the works. The project has been shelved since roughly 2011 (because of Sorkin's exceptionally busy schedule) when it was originally planned at HBO.

Krasinski said, "Recently, the incredible author of Paul Newman's biography, Shawn Levy, is writing a biography on the Chateau Marmont called The Castle on Sunset. So we just bought the rights to that book and we're going to give it another shot."

The history of the Chateau Marmont is very much the history of Hollywood itself, with Krasinski likening it to "the glass holding" the snow globe of Hollywood together. The Chateau was originally built as apartments in the 1929 and made into a hotel after the Crash that started the Great Depression.

When a Japanese fighter plane was spotted in Santa Monica in the '40s during WWII's "Battle of Los Angeles", people flocked to the Marmont's basement because it was the only earthquake-proof basement there at the time. The Chateau also had its share of celebrity scandals and other assorted historical oddities.
