Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk has leaked news that Radiohead have composed the sound track for the movie adaptation of his novel Choke, staring Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston.
A public fan of Radiohead, Palahniuk told 6Music’s Shaun Keaveny:
“Clark Gregg, who directed the movie version of Choke, he knew that I’d written Choke while listening to Pablo Honey... So Clark got Radiohead to contribute a song...Apparently Radiohead liked the movie so much, they’ve written the score, ... So it’s ‘Choke – with the music of Radiohead’“Choke is out later this year - watch the trailer here (featuring Clap Your Hands Say Yeah: Satan Said Dance).
Movies of Palahniuk’s books have a history with alternative music: The Pixies’ Where is My Mind famously closed Fight Club which was otherwise scored by The Dust Brothers, and Nine Inch Nails have been linked to the still unfinished adaptation of Survivor.
What else has Palahniuk been up to? His latest novel Snuff is out now. It is the story of Cassie Wright, a porn priestess wanting to cap her legendary career with the world record for serial fornication.
