Chuck Palahniuk to Write Fight Club Sequel…As a Graphic Novel
You’d be hard-pressed to find a movie fan that tells you they didn’t enjoy David Fincher’s gritty and violent adaptation of Fight Club. Brad Pitt and Edward Norton lead this heavy hitter of a film that features one of the most spectacular plot twists in decades, roles that many fans feel to be among their top characters in both of their illustrious careers.
Well, fans of Chuck Palahniuk’s story have a reason to rejoice, as the author has stated that he is working on a sequel to Fight Club that will arrive in graphic novel form. Palahniuk promises that the darkness and messiness will be carried over. Palahniuk has been meeting with artist from Marvel, DC and Dark Horse and they are “walking him 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.
You may have to wait a while before the books hit shelves, however. Due to contract obligations, the project can’t come to light for some time. But, because the project will be in serialized in graphic form, his book publisher may allow the Fight Club sequel to be published before 2015. Not sure about you kids, but this has potential to not only be incredibly popular, but it could be amazingly awesome. Let’s hope this one happens sooner rather than later.
In Tyler We Trust.
