‘Fight Club’ Sequel Is On The Way
  |  @   |  

A sequel to the Chuck Palahniuk novel Fight Club is on the way, the author revealed at the recent San Diego Comic-Con. The book was adapted into a movie directed by David Fincher and starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt in 1999.

But instead of another novel, the sequel will actually come in the form of a serialized graphic novel, which will take place ten years after the events of the original story. For those who aren’t aware, the original tells the story of a normal, everyday, boring man who pretends to have problems in order to attend support groups that help alleviate his insomnia that one day meets a mysterious man named Tyler Durden who changes his life entirely.

Continue reading to check out a statement from Palahniuk about the announcement and what the sequel will be about.

Palahniuk elaborated on the announcement in an e-mail to ChuckPalahniuk.com, saying:

About the graphic novel, it’s true. 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. But 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 unfortunately, it looks like it’ll be a couple of years before we see this. It’s not clear whether or not there’s already interest in turning the sequel graphic novels into a sequel movie, but if so, that would also be a ways off.
