It’s been some time since there was last an update on the feature film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Snuff, but today it has been revealed that Fabien Martorell (Tromatized: Meet Lloyd Kaufman) is attached to helm.
Martorell will direct the script that he co-wrote with Golan Ramras. Producers Jean Pierre Magro and Dean OToole will finance and produce through their London-based Immortal Transmedia along with Ramras, Martorell and Aperture Entertainment’s Adam Goldworm.
Snuff is an R-rated story of love and redemption set in the green room of the world’s biggest gang bang; porn priestess Cassie Wright intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication on camera with 600 men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera and are each connected to Cassie in strange ways. Like in all of Palahniuk’s twisted tales, nobody is who they seem to be and things are going to get worse before they get better.
Chuck Palahniuk is the best selling author of numerous novels including Fight Club and “Choke,” turned into films by David Fincher and Clark Gregg, respectively. Martorell, meanwhile, recently wrapped The Guns Story, a documentary about legendary guitarist Tracii Guns (founder of L.A. Guns and Guns N Roses), and is currently filming The Coin starring Christopher Lloyd and Kathryn Morris.
