Multiple Personality Disorder Case Set for Movie (Exclusive)

Multiple Personality Disorder Case Set for Movie (Exclusive)
Producer Aaron Magnani is developing a movie project from Dr. Richard Baer’s “Switching Time: A Doctor’s Harrowing Story of Treating a Woman with 17 Personalities.”

Jen Kleiner, the director of “Nina Quebrada,” is writing the script.

The book, published in 2007 by Crown, centers on a female patient Baer treated who created 17 different versions of herself — men, women, young boys, a toddler, nurturing, prim, licentious — to survive. The Chicago psychiatrist eventually learned that the patient had been a victim of sexual abuse.

“Switching Time” is described as the first story centering on multiple personality disorder to be told by the treating physician.

Magnani is also developing author Cj Cherryh’s sci-fi fantasy quartet “The Morgaine Stories,” with Peter Arneson adapting. Magnani and Arneson previously worked on indie “Iron Doors” together.

Magnani is also producing “18 Wheel Butterfly” with Evan Rachel Wood attached to star.

What’s behind “Iron Doors”? Director comments & exclusive photos!
The ale flows like there’s no tomorrow at Cologne, Germany’s All Bar One, a popular watering hole for hip city folk. Stephen Manuel (pictured left), director of the new horror film Iron Doors, eyes the Jameson whiskey, no doubt inspired by his background—he was born in Ireland and raised bilingually in Germany. He and Fango are raising glasses over the success of Iron Doors (see exclusive pics past the jump), which premiered recently at Estonia’s Haapsalu Horror Film Festival and is currently being sold internationally by Julian Richards’ Jinga Films distribution house.

Hoff 2010 Wrap Up

The fifth annual Haapsalu Fantastic Film Festival has come to an end and I write this from the Tallinn airport lounge while massively sleep deprived. This proved to be a trip with minimal wifi - hence the lack of updates - but stacks of fantastic people.

After the previously mentioned kick-off - a zombie walk and an outdoor screening in the magnificent ruins of a 13th century castle - things got going in earnest on Saturday. The day began with a brief break from the dominantly hard edged horror theme with back-to-back screenings of Cory McAbee's stellar scifi cowboy musical Stingray Sam - which left me, once again, singing the theme song incessantly for the next two days - and Yoshihiro Nishimura's delirious splatter comedy Vampire Girl Versus Frankenstein Girl.

Adam Mason To Unleash His Pig In Estonia.

While fans of Broken and The Devil's Chair director Adam Mason have been awaiting the arrival of his dark comedy Luster - a film that has finally completed a lengthy post production only recently - the director himself has been cooking up a little something on the sly.

Together with frequent collaborator Andrew Howard, Mason has completed an entirely different film during the waiting period for Luster. Shot on the cheap and on the sly, with any word kept carefully out of the press until the film was complete Pig is a grueling exercise in single take horror, a savage satire on American gender roles built around a lunatic central performance from Andrew Howard. With the run time dominated by a single 70+ minute take this is something entirely new from Mason, a technical experiment that builds on the themes and approach of his earlier work.

But where to see it?
