Chuck Palahniuk’s Novel Lullaby Heading to the Big Screen
As you no doubt know, Chuck Palahniuk is the fine gentleman who wrote the novel Fight Club, so you should be looking forward to the film adaptation of his book Lullaby, for which he co-wrote the screenplay.
Published in 2002 and nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel, Lullaby followed a reporter investigating a rhyme which presumably kills all those who hear it.
If the Kickstarter campaign’s a success, filming is set to begin in Oregon later this year and will last for twenty-seven days. Andy Mingo is set to direct with Josh Leake producing.
Lullaby follows the life of Carl Streator, an over-the-hill reporter whose family mysteriously died years prior. After being assigned to investigate a rash of mysterious infant deaths, he discovers the killer of his own family—an ancient culling song published as a lullaby in a simple children’s book. Carl sets out to destroy existing copies throughout the world but is surprised to learn that the people he once trusted to stop the deaths may be involved in the heinous acts.
