Chuck Palahniuk In The Hollywood Reporter

This news is about a month old now, but it's worth mentioning. Chuck Palahniuk did a cool q&a with The Hollywood Reporter during the 'Choke' release.

Take special note of the last question, where Chuck is asked about a possible collaboration with DC Comics.

George Gallo

A Wonderful Life
Christopher Stipp
George Gallo Interview on ChuckPalahniuk.net

As a writer of a book you have only yourself to depend on to get it made. You’re the one who has to come up with the words, you are the one who strings together the narrative and, ultimately, you are the only one who gets named in the reviews. With a movie, however, you are only as good as the relationships you develop with those who can take your written work and make it something fluid and real. George Gallo, writer and director of LOCAL COLOR, had to pull in a phalanx of relationships he’s developed with some of Hollywood’s elite in order to get his film made. Based on the portrait of an artist as a young man, George’s own evolution as someone who dabbled in paints rather than celluloid, the movie captures what it meant to be young and to have spent time with a master of his craft.

Go Out And Vote!!!

Go Out And Vote!
For me, this is the most important election of my life. Therefore, this is probably one of the most important posts I've ever made on this site. And hey, it's not even Chuck Palahniuk related. Today is Election Day. This was the longest election campaign in our history, and its impact and consequences on the country can be huge. Simply put, it's a monumental occasion. So all of you need to go out and cast your ballot today. Go vote! I won't lie, I'm voting for Barack Obama. I've been a supporter of his since I first read about him over a year ago. I've even donated to his campaign. This isn't about Obama though. It's not about McCain. It's about you. So don't waste the opportunity this country has given you. Here is a link with voting information. Here is an easy way to find your closest polling station.

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.

I didn't have a chance to post it at the time, but a couple weeks back I heard back again from Jenni Miller, a reporter for Premiere Magazine.
