The author of Fight Club could be bringing his novel ‘Lullaby’ to the big screen thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Chuck Palahniuk’s ‘Lullaby’ is a supernatural story, focusing on a “culling song” printed in children’s books that causes any child whose parents read the song aloud to die. Originally asking for $250,000 to fund the filming of the adaptation, the Kickstarter has now reached over $265,000 as of Sunday night (June 5). Fightclub was created with a budget of $63 million.

Writing in the Kickstarter campaign, film producer Josh Leake says Chuck “doesn’t write for mainstream audiences” and that “his books challenge everything about mainstream audiences.”

“His novel Lullaby deploys necrophilia, gender-bending, and no-way-would-this-make-it-to-comfortable-TV satire,” he continues. “We want to make a movie that makes people feel uncomfortable enough to think original thoughts again, just like Chuck’s novels do. To do that we need your help through Kickstarter.”

Speaking in an interview with IndieWire, Palahniuk said that ‘Lullaby’ is his most conventionally popular book, and one that he originally thought would be turned into a TV series. “We had a lot of interest from TV people, but Andy kind of swooped in and grabbed the rights before they did,” Palahniuk said.

According to the Kickstarter description, Palahniuk began writing Lullaby during the trial of his father’s murderer in 1999. The prosecutor came to Chuck and asked him if he wanted to advocate for the death penalty. This idea spawned the culling song, or the power of the word to cast a spell, and the story of Lullaby was created.

The film is set to be directed an co-written by Andy Mingo and produced by Josh Leake. “We will premiere the film in late 2017 or beginning 2018 and release it publicly thereafter,” they said.
