Mortier Adapting Palahniuk’s Haunted


Variety reports that Brian Levy has launched a management and production company, New School Media, and his first move is optioning the rights to Chuck Palahniuk’s novel “Haunted.”

Koen Mortier (Ex-Drummer) will adapt and direct, says Variety.

“Haunted” revolves around a group of characters who answer an ad for a writers retreat and unwittingly end up competing in a “Survivor”-like scenario, where the host withholds heat, power and food. As the storytellers grow more desperate they ruthlessly plot to make themselves the hero of the reality show or film that they expect will be made from their plight.

Palahniuk’s “Fight Club” and “Choke” have been made into films, while “Invisible Monsters” and “Survivor” are in development.
