Chuck Palahniuk is finally ready to break the first rule and talk about his sequel to Fight Club. Wait, wait, pitchforks down, it’s cool, this isn’t a movie. It isn’t even a traditional novel; it will be a graphic novel. In fact, there might be more than one.
Whatever form it takes, how do you follow a savage skewering of masculine ideas? Turns out, it’s all about the protagonist of the original story inheriting some of the stuff he railed against when we first got to know him. Read More »

When news first broke in 2008 that a film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk‘s Haunted was in the works, Peter wondered just how the unconventional (and notoriously disturbing) book could be translated to the big screen. And for a while, it seemed like perhaps it wouldn’t. Koen Mortier (Ex-Drummer) was set to write and direct right off the bat, and then we heard little else about it for the next few years.
As of today, there’s still no word on how the film might look or who might star. But it is taking a big step forward, as it’s finally secured the financing to get off the ground. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Chuck Palahniuk‘s novel Invisible Monsters has been optioned off and on since 2001, with multiple writers taking a crack at a script, and multiple producers trying to get together a cast and financing. Nothing has worked out, but in 2008 Cameron MacLaren started looking into the option. In March 2010 he managed to secure the rights to the novel, which tells a tale of “a disfigured ex-fashion model, a pill-popping drama queen and a sexually confused vice operative who embark on a road trip fueled by a radical new form of self-discovery as a means to reinvent themselves.”
Now there is a director for the project: TV director Samir Rehem, who has credits on Degrassi: The Next Generation, and Skins. Read More »
There’s been a lot of jumping the gun lately when it comes to casting announcements, and, surprisingly, most of it has been from directors and producers rather than press. So here’s an attempt to quickly set the story straight on several diverse projects: David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Snuff, and Beat the Reaper. Read More »
Good lord, does Snuff sound horrifying. Fabien Martorell is co-writing (with Karina Wilson) and directing an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk‘s novel about a faded porn star who sets up a giant gang bang in order to break the record for sexual partners in one film, and three of the men that are possible partners. Now the film has a cast: Thora Birch, Daryl Hannah, and, as one of the guys in line to, uh, appear in the film, we’ve got Tom Sizemore. Yeah, you read that right. Read More »

Bob Goldthwait‘s 2006 film Sleeping Dogs Lie (originally titled “Stay”) was about a relationship that is destroyed when a guy’s girlfriend reveals a past indiscretion (read: blowjob) with a dog. Believe it or not, Goldthwait’s 2009 follow-up is at least 10 times more twisted and probably 20 times funnier. The film seems to be unofficially inspired by Chuck Palahniuk‘s infamous short story Guts and the A Million Little Pieces fiasco.
