Myron Bolitar on the big screen?

I just finished the 6th book in this series (The Final Detail) last night and was wondering about the film rights. Then today, I see this...

From Publishers Marketplace:
Film rights to Harlan Coben's Bolitar series -- DEAL BREAKER, DROP SHOT, FADE AWAY, BACK SPIN, ONE FALSE MOVE, THE FINAL DETAIL, DARKEST FEAR -- featuring Myron Bolitar, a former basketball star and Harvard Law School grad who runs his own sports agency and dabbles in the private investigation business, to Columbia Pictures for producer John Calley, in a major deal, by Joel Gotler at Intellectual Property Group, on behalf of Lisa Vance at the Aaron Priest Literary Agency.
If handled properly, this could be a terrific franchise. Myron and Win are two of the best characters in an ongoing series.

Now I just hope that Coben returns to writing about them!
