HAUNTED Has A Director!

Big news hit the net yesterday, which I missed because I was sitting in Jury Duty selection from 8am on. It seems HAUNTED is now on the fast-track to become Chuck Palahniuk's next movie adaptation. Variety reported that the option was acquired by Brian Levy, who has launched a management and production company called New School Media. 'Haunted' will be their first project. The writer and director is going to Belgium filmmaker Koen Mortier (pictured below). Mortier already has a building filmography listed on the IMDB, but is most noted for his last film 'Ex-Drummer'. Koen is on board to write and direct the adaptation.

CHOKE Movie: Round Table Discussion With Chuck Palahniuk, Clark Gregg & Sam Rockwell!

You'll remember that last month, Borders Books & Music hosted a truly great event that I was privileged to be at. It was a moderated round table discussion between Chuck Palahniuk, Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell. What made the event so special was that, the three of them were coming off a full day of press. And they were so burned out, that it made them loopy and goofy. This resulted in some hysterical back and forths that had the audience cracking up.

Last Call For CHOKE Movie Contest Submissions

Chuck's new novel "Pygmy" is now being typeset. This means we have to get Chuck the winning contestant's name of the Choke Movie Contest, so he can include it as a character in the book. So consider this a last call for submissions.

If you participated in last weekend's contest and have pictures of you and friends holding you CHOKE movie ticket stubs, send them to: chokecontest@chuckpalahniuk.net.

/workshop/chucks-essays-2008-34Apologies for posting this one late, but Chuck has something special for you today that I think you're all going to agree was worth the wait.
