Palahniuk Seeks Crowd-Funding For “Lullaby”

Though it has been planned for years, author Chuck Palahniuk has now taken to Kickstarter to launch a crowdfunding campaign for a film adaptation of his 2002 novel “Lullaby”.

Palahniuk, director Andy Mingo, and producer Josh Leake have kicked off the effort which will mark the “Fight Club” and “Choke” author’s first-ever screenwriting credit. The story itself deals with a ‘culling song’ that deals a painless death to anyone it’s recited or even thought at. It was penned as a reaction to the trial of his father’s murderer.

Kicking off the other day, the group are seeking $250,000 with $90,400 of that already achieved. The group says: “Both director Andy Mingo and producer Josh Leake have enough talented friends, family and colleagues that at this amount, the film can be made on a bootstrap budget.”
