Daryl Hannah, Tom Sizemore, and Thora Birch will star in director Fabien Martorell’s upcoming adaptation of the Chuck Palahniuk novel Snuff. The Cult [via AICN] reports that Hannah has been cast as Cassie Wright, an aging porn star who is planning to film a 600-man gangbang as her last film. Sizemore will be playing Mr. 600, the man who is responsible for introducing Cassie to the business. Meanwhile, Birch (who happens to be the daughter of two porn stars in real life) will play the role of a “talent wrangler” named Sheila.
I still have yet to read Palahniuk’s book, but I’m always happy to see Hannah, Sizemore, and Birch getting more prominent roles. All three actors are, in my opinion, underrated and underused. Hit the jump to read the plot synopsis for the Palahniuk novel.

Diane Keaton and Ed Harris have signed on to star in The Look of Love, co-written and directed by Arie Posin (The Chumscrubber). The film tells the story of “a widow who, several years after the death of her husband, mysteriously meets a man who looks exactly like her deceased husband.” Julie Lynn (Mother and Child) and Bonnie Curtis (Red Eye) are producing with Exclusive Films International, the studio’s first project under a new funding program. EFI will debut The Look of Love to foreign buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin alongside The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe, George Clooney’s adaptation of The Ides of March, So Undercover starring Miley Cyrus, and Martin Scorsese’s untitled George Harrison documentary.
