The Boy Who Could’t Sleep and Never Had To

A long time ago, we spoke with renaissance man D.C. Pierson about his novel “The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To.” It’s a thrilling tale about a gawky young high school lad who loves to draw and the friendship he strikes up with an even gawkier high school lad who never sleeps at all ever. Of course, freakish occurrences like that don’t go unnoticed, and soon they are running from dark forces that plan all sorts of terrible things for them. It’s endearing, thrilling, and strange. It’s the kind of novel that seems written by a sophomore in high school if that sophomore could actually write as well as he thinks he can. Fortunately, and finally, it’s being turned into a movie, and they’re keeping it all in the family. Mystery Team director Dan Eckman will be taking the reins on this one alongside producer of all things Derrick Comedy, Meggie McFadden. According to Cinema Blend the pair co-wrote the script for The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To with Pierson. The project doesn’t have financing yet, but Eckman will be reaching out for money quite soon. Hopefully someone will believe in it (financially), because (in several ways) this could be the movie that Gentlemen Broncos desperately wanted to be.
