‘Invisible Monsters’ pic locks director

Samir Rehem to helm adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk novel

“Fight Club” author Chuck Palahniuk hasn’t had a novel adapted for the bigscreen since 2008’s “Choke,” but there has been movement on one of his earliest novels, as TV helmer Samir Rehem has become attached to direct “Invisible Monsters.”

Story follows a disfigured ex-fashion model, a pill-popping drama queen and a sexually confused vice operative as they embark on a road trip hoping to reinvent themselves.

Cameron MacLaren is penning a faithful adaptation of the book and producing through his Toronto-based banner MacLaren Prods., where the project is being developed as he continues to raise financing.

Palahniuk himself is weighing in with suggestions on how to stylize the story for a visual medium.

UTA-repped Rehem has directed episodes of MTV’s “Skins,” FX’s “Testees” and “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”
