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.
