Given the way the Fight Club movie has skyrocketed from cult hit to required viewing for angsty teenagers, itā€™s surprising that more Chuck Palahniuk books havenā€™t gotten big-screen adaptations. Well, it would be surprising if so many of Palahniukā€™s books werenā€™t aggressively weird and off-putting, at least. (cough cough). According to The Wrap, though, another one of Palahniukā€™s novels is finally getting an adaptation: Lullaby.

Indie director Andy Mingo will direct, indie producer Josh Leake will produce, and The Wrap expects Mingo to co-write the script with Palahniuk himself. Lullaby is about a man who discovers that an African chant called the ā€œculling songā€ is apparently responsible for a series of mysterious infant deaths, but like all Palahniuk books, things quickly branch out and get more twisty from there. The film adaptation of Lullaby is set to start filming early next year. Also, itā€™s worth noting that James Franco is not involved in this production, though heā€™s probably still working on his adaptation of Palahniukā€™s Rant.
