Choke


I love me my Chuck Palahniuk books.
It's cool to hear that the movie adaptation of the the novel Choke is going to start filming next week in Jersey. Starring Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston.
Those unfamiliar with the book; Rockwell will play a sex addict and Colonial War re-enactor who deliberately chokes in restaurants in order to attach himself to his rescuers and con them out of their life savings, all to support his mother (Huston) in a private mental health hospital.

I know ... I'm completely excited about this because this is one of my favorite Chuck books. I only hope the first time director does a decent job with the material.
