Fight Club was a great film, one of my favorites in fact. It’s almost legendary in some circles and over the years, it has amassed an enormous following. For a while now fans have been calling for a sequel and though we haven’t heard anything official just yet, author Chuck Palahniuk, who penned the novel that the film is based on, has revealed that he is working on several follow-ups to his beloved book.
Speaking at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Palahniuk said the following:
About the graphic novel, it’s true, it’s happening. Chelsea Cain has been introducing me to artists and creators from Marvel, DC and Dark Horse, and they’re walking me through the process. It will likely be a series of books that update the story ten years after the seeming end of Tyler Durden. Nowadays, Tyler is telling the story, lurking inside Jack, and ready to launch a come-back. Jack is oblivious. Marla is bored. Their marriage has run aground on the rocky coastline of middle-aged suburban boredom. It’s only when their little boy disappears, kidnapped by Tyler, that Jack is dragged back into the world of Mayhem.
It will, of course, be dark and messy. Due to contract obligations it can’t come to light for a while. Next year is “Beautiful You,” followed by the story collection. ut since the Fight Club sequel will appear serialized in graphic form, my book publisher might allow me to launch it earlier than 2015. Feel free to release any or all of this information. We haven’t started to court a specific publisher, not until I hammer out the complete story.
So there you have it, “a series of books” that will act as sequels to the original Fight Club. Of course, these books will be turned into films because that’s just what Hollywood does, especially for a property like Fight Club. You can bet that studios are already fighting over the rights.
Now the only question is, will Brad Pitt and/or Edward Norton return to reprise their roles? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
