Chuck Paluhniuk’s ‘Lullaby’ Movie Reaches $250,000 Kickstarter Goal

4 June 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fight Club” novelist Chuck Palahniuk’s Kickstarter campaign to make a low-budget movie based on his 2002 novel “Lullaby” has reached its goal of $250,000.

Palahniuk will co-write the screenplay with director Andy Mingo. Josh Leake is producing and Palahniuk will exec produce.

The 30-day campaign to raise the funds launched May 17. It had raised $255,853 from 3,273 backers as of 1 p.m. on Saturday, its 17th day.

Lullaby” centers on an aging reporter whose family mysteriously died years earlier. Palahniuk wrote the novel during the trial of a man who was convicted of murdering his father.

“The support has been very gratifying,” Palahniuk told Variety. “I’m planning to go to locations to watch it get shot but I really want it to be Andy’s movie, too. He’s the one who’s really making this happen.”

Palahniuk noted that he’s working with Mingo on the trailer for the “Fight Club »

Palahniuk's Lullaby Headed To The Big Screen

30 May 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Chuck Palahniuk´s Lullaby is poised to become his latest work to hit the big screen with a  crowd-funding campaign eyeing to raise at least $250 000 to see the world´s unlikeliest serial killer on the screen. Lullaby - written to help the author to cope with the tragic death of his father - was published between medically-laden sex addict satire Choke and confession of the “desperate” artist in Diary. All the way back in 2008, Palahniuk revealed Swedish director Rolf Johansson was set to adapt Lullaby which should have hit screens in 2010. Film productions are notoriously whimsical so it is no surprise that Johansson is no longer helming the project. The project is being currently developed by Portland based independent director, Andy Mingo, who...

Kickstarter campaign launches for film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s Lullaby

22 May 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chuck Palahniuk is a difficult author to adapt for the screen.  Following the success of Fight Club, studios were quick to snap up the rights to his other properties – including those of popular novels Invisible Monsters and Survivor.  However, it wasn’t until 2008’s Choke, which starred Sam Rockwell, that we would see another one of his novels adapted – thankfully it was another winner, but unfortunately it flew by under the radar.

At the time of writing, a film adaptation of his 2008 novel Snuff is reportedly in development to be directed by Fabien Martorell.  But now, another title is in the works to be brought to the screen.  That’s right, Lullaby is currently in development, a collaboration with indie filmmakers Andy Mingo and Josh Leake, with Palahniuk himself penning a screenplay and serving as executive producer.  Right now, they’re trying to raise funds for the project via a Kickstarter campaign. »

Palahniuk Seeks Crowd-Funding For "Lullaby"

19 May 2016 7:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

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."

Fight Club” novelist Chuck Palahniuk has launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a low-budget movie based on his 2002 novel “Lullaby.”

Lullaby” centers on an aging reporter whose family mysteriously died years earlier. Palahniuk wrote the novel during the trial of a man who was convicted of murdering his father.

“This project is also important to Chuck,” the campaign page said. “He 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. »
