Based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club is finally getting a sequel… In the form of a 10-issue comic book series set to be published by Dark Horse Comics.
The 1999 film that starred Edward Norton as the nameless narrator who befriends a figment of his imagination in the form of Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) and embodies everything he wishes he was, changed the way we looked at cinema (and Brad Pitt) as a whole. Ask any guy what their favorite movies are and Fight Club will be in the majority of Top 10 Lists. Now, 15 years later, we will get to see where the Narrator and Tyler Durden are 10 years after the events of the original story.
Chick Palahniuk sat down recently in an interview with USA Today where he shared a lot of the plot and styling details. The Narrator is now married to Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter in the film) with a 9-year-old son, Junior. The couple struggles with middle-age, and copes with all that has happened after Project Mayhem and what it has turned into over the passing decade. Oh, and Tyler Durden is back too! The sequel, says Palahniuk, will reveal the true origins of the character which may be more than a figment of the sleepless narrator’s imagination.
“Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind.” -Chuck Palahniuk during an interview with USA Today
Though a sequel was never intended to go into fruition, Chuck accidentally said during a panel in Comic-Con 2013 that he was working on a sequel, and that after saying this in front of 1,500 people, he felt me must honor his word.
