"Fight Club" author Chuck Palahniuk's novel "Lullaby" has been optioned for film, TheWrap reports.
The adaptation will be directed by Andy Mingo, who may co-write the screenplay with Palahniuk. Producer Josh Leake said in a statement they hope begin filming early next year.
"Lullaby" follows newspaper reporter Carl Steator, who discovers a "culling song" with the power to kill that is responsible for a slew of sudden infant death syndrome cases, including his own child's. Steator begins to use the song himself once he discovers its ability.
Mingo previously worked with Palahniuk on the short film "Romance," based on a story from the author's upcoming collection "Make Something Up: Stories You Can’t Unread."
