Victor Gischler’s GO-GO GIRLS OF THE APOCALYPSE: Author, producer share thoughts on project.

Victor Gischler recently announced the sale of the film rights to Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse to producer Brad Wyman.

Wyman was behind the phenominal Monster with Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci. Unfortunately, he was also involved with Pamela Anderson’s Barb Wire, but you have to take the good with the bad. It is also worth noting that Mr. Wyman is one of the producers for Blitz, the film based on the Ken Bruen novel of the same name.

For you sad bastards that have not read Go-Go Girls, it is Victor’s take on a post-war world, with sex, violence, gambling and capitalism.

I reached out to both to get their impressions of each other.

Wyman called Go-Go Girls “an E ticket ride through hell” and said that “It is my favorite type of literature — Expoltation that is so brilliant and it becomes Art and therefore creates it’s own Genre = Artsploation.I am thrilled to embarking on the motion picture.”

I asked Victor about this deal and he is very pumped about the prospects: “Producer Brad Wyman is clearly an avid reader. I’ve heard that some producers have assistants summarize books for them, but in a recent phone call to Wyman, it was clear the man had closely read the novel and that he was giving careful thought to the film adaptation. Talking to him made me very enthusiastic about the possibilities.”
Victor also mentioned a promotional idea that Wyman came up with: A limited run of Joey Armageddon’s Platinum Cards which were featured in the novel.

Personally, Brad sounds like the right kind of guy to make Go-Go happen. Let us all cross our fingers and hope this happens!
