Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club, is having another of his stories, Snuff, adapted for the screen. Fabien Martorell is set to direct this story of a porn star (Cassie Wright) who decides to film a 600-person strong gang bang before retiring. Daryl Hannah, who was plucked from relative obscurity by Tarantino for Kill Bill before retreating once again into the wilderness, will play Cassie Wright.

The story is told from the point of view of three of the men in line to participate in Cassie’s swan-song, each of whom are identified only by their numbers, Mr 72, Mr 137 and Mr 600. Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, True Romance)┬áhas been cast as Mr 600, being the man who first introduced Cassie to the adult entertainment industry. He in turn introduces us to each of the others waiting in line. There is no news yet on who will play Mr 72 or Mr 137. In the novel Mr 72 claims to be Cassie’s son, which one can only presume will not go down well with the Daily Mail. Thora Birch (American Beauty, The Hole, Ghost World) is set to play a “talent wrangler” named Sheila.

It looks as though this is going to be another grown up film from exceedingly grown up source material. We’ll bring you more casting news as we hear it.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
