Choke - Movie
Check out an interview with Choke director Clark Greg. This is part of The Sundance Channel's 'Meet The Filmmakers' series.
I've been wanting to post these for the past few days, but with the site slowness, I held off. But they're so damn good, I couldn't resist anymore. Click the below image to see more stills from Choke.
I'll say no more. The pictures spead for themselves. See them all here.
Thanks to Mike Klimek for alterting me to these. And props goes to Collinder.
Information about the official soundtrack for Choke is up at The Playlist blog. Here are just some of the bands featured: Radiohead, The Fiery Furnaces, Rogue Wave, Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah!
This news makes me happy. I love almost every band on this soundtrack. Clarg Gregg seems to know exactly what he's doing with this adaptation.
Props to redandjohnny for linking this news story our way.
Test2. I've been trading emails back and forth with Chuck this week about various things. First he shot me an update on "Choke" and its status at The Sundance Film Festival this year:
Hello Dennis --
Turns out that "Choke" will get five showings at Sundance. The 21th through the 25th in different venues.
There's more to that email that I can't show you yet. ::evil grin::
Next, I asked Chuck about Francis Lawrence's (director of I Am Legend) recent quote about Survivor being his next project:
It's been a long while since I heard their statement of 'Survivor' as next-in-line. But they did recently re-buy the option for a new period of time.
The recent purchase Chuck talks about was a few months ago I believe. Which would definitely seem to back Lawrence's quote and intent. Hmm, looks like we could have a go-er here after all.
Time will tell.
The boys over at Twitch got the first still of Sam Rockwell in Choke!
With the announcement that Choke will be debuting at The Sundance Film Festival last week, you can bet we'll be seeing many more screenshots popping in soon.
I actually knew about this last week, via an email from Chuck, but I wasn't sure I should post about it just yet. But seeing as how the news hit the internet yesterday about the 2008 Sundance Film Festival line-up, I figure you should all know. Here's the direct quote from Chuck:
The great news of last week was "Choke" got one of the slots for Sundance. It will most likely premier Jan. 17th thru 23. Clark Gregg and Beau Flynn are flying high because their film got one of the 16 slots available for 3700+ films submitted. read more »

On The 'Choke' Set With Chuck Palahniuk, Sam Rockwell...
Some of those articles we saw appear online and on The Cult yesterday already mentioned this, but I have an inside scoop about the shooting of 'Choke' that began last week from someone who was actually there and witnessed it all.
From Angry Ritch (on MySpace):

This is a big one. Chuck emailed me a few days ago to give me the exclusive news that Choke is going into production on June 18th! Sam Rockwell is set to star, and first-timer Clark Gregg will be directing. A little history on Gregg: He wrote the Robert Zemeckis thriller What Lies Beneath and, as an actor, is a regular on the hit TV show The New Adventures of Old Christine. Gregg adapted Choke into screenplay form and has been championing the project for years now. God bless him and his tenacity as the film has finally been greenlit for production and Gregg will be getting his debut in the directing chair. Chuck also went on to tell me that the mom is most likely Glenn Close, Annette Benning or Juliana Moore.
Here's Gregg's IMDB page.
