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.
ATTENTION: The site speed is back. In full effect. And it may even be getting faster yet. Also, you can now post new threads again. Sorry about that.
The day is finally here. The Cult 2008 comes alive! It started as a discussion between Kirk and I last Spring about updating the website. And what began as possibly just a redesign, soon blew up into giving you all an entirely new user experience.
I think many of you were assuming you were going to login today (or last week, lol) and see the same site, but in a different color. Perhaps with a new header? Fuck no. We went to bat for you all and spent countless hours designing and building and tweaking until we turned this ChuckPalahniuk.net into what it deserves to be. We encourage you all to explore every nook and cranny of this new house.
But here are some of the highlighted features: read more »
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 »
