My humble review of said book: www.adultfyi.com/read.php?ID=28278

from www.chicagotribune.com – Chuck Palahniuk’s “Snuff” film has found financing through Immortal Transmedia, the London-based production house led by producers Jean Pierre Magro and Dean O’Toole.

Duo has overseen the production on projects including Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick Ass,” Harmony Korine’s “Mister Lonely” and upcoming UK sitcoms “The Midnight Beast” and “PLEBS.”

Aperture Entertainment’s Adam Goldworm has come on to produce along with Magro and O’Toole. Also producing are Golan Ramras, who co-wrote the script with “Snuff” helmer Fabien Martorell, who recently wrapped docu “The Guns Story.”

“Snuff” takes place during a porn priestess’ attempt to have sex with 600 men on-camera. Pic is told from the perspective of three of those men in a story of love and redemption.

Palahniuk, the bestselling author of “Fight Club,” has written a number of “appetite supressing” novels, as the New York Times once wrote. His other works include “Diary,” “Survivor” and “Lullaby,” the latter of which centers around a children’s song that kills.

Goldworm is currently producing Warner Bros.’ “Lore” and Summit’s “The Last Witch Hunter.” Other credits include Showtime’s “Masters of Horro” and NBC’s “Fear Itself.”

Martorell is currently filming “The coin” starring Christopher Lloyd and Kathryn Morris.

more from www.indiewire.com – While “Fight Club” will probably always be the high bar never to be reached again for adaptations of Chuck Palahniuk’s work on the big screen, filmmakers will keep trying. “Choke” came and went and was mostly a disappointment, but “Snuff” should be an interesting gamble. The author’s book about an aging porn star who decides to cap off her career by having sex with 600 men in one day, with the story told through the eyes of three men who are lining up to do the deed with her, should be challenging to say the least. And while we never thought financing would come through for a project that presumably has a very niche appeal, money is coming.

Immortal Transmedia, and producers Jean Pierre Magro and Dean O’Toole (“Kick-Ass,” “Mister Lonely”) are fronting the cash for the movie that will be written and directed by French filmmaker Fabien Martorell whose biggest credit to date is the documentary “Tromatized: Meet Lloyd Kaufman.” So yeah, not exactly the most promising talent behind the camera and as for casting, it’s up in the air. While in early 2011 Tom Sizemore and Thora Birch where said to be taking part (rumors of Daryl Hannah as the porn star were quickly shot down), there’s no mention of them here and we presume it will be different talent. We’re curious just how this will get made at all, but it seems a couple of people think they can make it happen, so we’ll see.
