Watch Proof-of-Concept Short For The Film Adapation of DC Pierson’s “The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To”

DC Pierson is seeking to adapt his novel The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To along with his team Dan Eckman and Meggie McFadden into a feature length film. In the quest to do so, he has made this nice short film as a proof-of-concept to show how great a film of his book following a kid discovering that he can make things in a comic book appear in real life can be.

You might notice that that’s Tony Revolori, Zero from The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Jack Quaid in a short that could double as a pretty great teaser. 

So, Internet, do what you do best and let the word spread and, hopefully, the powers that be will take note and make a full fledged movie.
