A nameless reader just dropped us a line with clarification on the story we did a few days back regarding a director being brought on board to adapt Chuck Palahniuk’s Lullaby. The source we got the original intel from didn’t know the director’s actual name, just how it sounded when spoken, but our scooper seems to have deciphered it.
Lullaby is the story of a reporter, grieving the loss of his wife and child, who is assigned to do an article on SIDS. His investigation soon uncovers that all the children who died had been read the same poem the night before, which he soon learns is actually an African “culling song”, meant to bring death to anyone the song is sung to or, worse yet, anyone who is being focused on while the song is recited.
A Name for Lullaby Helmer
Director Chosen for Palahniuk's Lullaby
Though I’ve never read a single thing by him, it’s not because I have anything against Chuck Palahniuk. I’m sure he’s a great author and someday I’ll sit down and actually start digging through some of his works. One of his more horror-centric novels that I'll be sure to hit first is Lullaby, and it sounds like it’s finally on its way to the big screen.
