The long-awaited film adaptation of Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk's Invisible Monsters has been given new life, thanks to producer Cameron MacLaren bringing Samir Rehem on board as director.
Palahniuk published Invisible Monsters in 1999, a month before the release of David Fincher's adaptation of Fight Club was released in theaters. While there was immediate talk of a film version, the project has been stalled in development for over a decade.
The novel, which marries graphic violence and explicit content with a nontraditional structure, has been considered extremely difficult to translate from page to screen as its story is told in the nonlinear remembrances of a woman who's lost her lower jaw after being shot in the face and hits the road with a transsexual and an ex-police officer.
Best known for his television credits, Rehem has worked on Degrassi: The Next Generation and the American version of Skins.
