First released in February 1996, the Danny Boyle-directed film’s soundtrack has gone down as one of the finest in the history of modern cinema. Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust For Life’ became synonymous with the film, while the likes of Primal Scream, Blur and Pulp all featured on Trainspotting‘s final track list.

Earlier this year, the author of Fight Club said he was hoping to bring his novel ‘Lullaby’ to the big screen thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Chuck Palahniuk’s novel 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 requesting $250,000 to fund the filming of the adaptation, the Kickstarter fetched way over the asking price. Fightclub was created with a budget of $63 million.

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

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