Award-Winning French filmmaker Fabien Martorell (Tromatized: Meet Lloyd Kaufman)
is set to adapt and direct Snuff written by NY Times Best seller / cult sensation Chuck
Palahniuk (Fight Club, Choke).
Martorell will direct the script that he co-wrote with Golan Ramras. Producers Jean Pierre Magro and Dean O’Toole 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”, which David Fincher made into a film, “Diary”, “Lullaby”, “Survivor” and “Haunted”.
Fabien Martorell 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. Martorell's first featurelength documentary, Tromatized: Meet Lloyd Kaufman, was awarded, “Best Biographical Documentary,” at the 2009 New York International Independent Film Festival. He has directed, written and produced 8 short films that have been selected and screened at prestigious international festivals including Cannes.
