Slackjawpunks has just learned that the one and only Chuck Palahniuk has confirmed that he is working on a sequel to the acclaimed best seller Fight Club. But there’s always a catch right? All be it but this catch is a cool one. According to his website the sequel will be spun into David Fincher’s movie and Marvel, DC and Dark Horse have been courting him to publish the sequel. That’s right a graphic novel! Palahniuk said, “It will likely be a series of comics that update us on Tyler’s status ten years after his apparent demise.”
Here is an email from him regarding 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.
…We haven’t started to court a specific publisher, not until I hammer out the complete story.”
