Chuck Palahniuk To Write ‘Fight Club’ Graphic Novel Sequel [SDCC 2013]
Amidst all the news coming out of Comic-Con this past weekend, one big announcement may have been a bit lost in the chaos. At a panel on Friday, writer Chuck Palahniuk revealed his plans to write a graphic novel sequel to his hit novel Fight Club. Palahniuk confirmed the news on his official fan site, saying the story will take place “ten years after the seeming end of Tyler Durden.”
From the website:
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.
Fight Club is the story of Jack, a frustrated office drone and insomniac who meets an eccentric and charming soap maker named Tyler. Jack starts attending a support group, which leads to he and Tyler starting an underground group of middle-aged men who therapeutically beat the hell out of each other. In 1999 director David Fincher adapted the novel to a film starring Edward Norton, Brad Pitt and Helena Bonham Carter.
No artist for the graphic novel sequel has been named as of yet. Palahniuk says he won’t begin courting publishers until the project is complete, but hinted that it could possibly come out before 2015.
