Chuck Palahniuk Reveals Graphic Novel Sequel To 'Fight Club' On The Way

In another age, when red-blooded males like Norman Mailer roamed the earth, the absolute most rebellious-chic thing you could do as a writer was be interviewed by Playboy. And thus it has come to pass, 40-odd years later, it's still a thing and Chuck “Fight Club” Palahniuk has given an interview to Hustler (read it here), the younger, naughtier sibling to Hugh Hefner's creation. And lo, he has spoken of a “Fight Club 2.”

Fight Club

In another age, when red-blooded males like Norman Mailer roamed the earth, the absolute most rebellious-chic thing you could do as a writer was be interviewed by Playboy. And thus it has come to pass, 40-odd years later, it's still a thing and Chuck “Fight Club” Palahniuk has given an interview to Hustler (read it here), the younger, naughtier sibling to Hugh Hefner's creation. And lo, he has spoken of a “Fight Club 2.”

Hold your horses, though: it's not a movie (yet). For now “Fight Club 2” is just a graphic novel, in which Tyler Durden reemerges from the character who, to spite the movie version's Jack, Palahniuk is calling Cornelius. “He’s living a compromised life with a failing marriage, unsure about his passion for his wife. The typical midlife bullshit," the author explains. "Likewise, Marla is unsatisfied and dreams of accessing the wild man she’d once fallen in love with. She tampers with the small pharmacy of drugs that her husband needs to suppress Tyler, and— go figure—Tyler reemerges to terrorize their lives. “

“Typical midlife bullshit”; Mr Palahniuk pulls no punches, gentle reader. To find out exactly what it all involved, though, we'll have to wait until 2015, as currently scheduled, which gives us a while yet to talk about whether or not “Fight Club 2” will get made into a film. Or, you know, not talk about it, first rule, etc. etc, you fill in the blank. [via FirstShowing]
