The seat is finally taken by Jeremiah S. Chechik. The Canadian Filmmaker has been picked up to helm dark coming-of-age comedy project of "The Pornographer's Poem", a new production from House of Films Inc..
Being so, Checik then will round up the likes of Justin Chatwin, Makenna Ruddy, Mark Day, and Judy Nanney under his direction while developing the picture based on Karen Walton's script. Though so, there is no word yet on the production schedule.
Based on Michael Turner's 1999 cult novel of the same title, "The Pornographer's Poem" is set in the 1970s and follows a young boy who falls into the world of pornography after being influenced by his white, rich neighbors. Chatwin, Bill House, Daniel Iron, and Lainie Stolhanske are all serving as producers.
First making his foray in filmmaking through "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" in 1989, Checik is known for his work in Sharon Stone's 1996 vehicle of "Diabolique." His other credits include "Benny & Joon", "Tall Tale", and "The Avengers".
