'Fight Club' Sequel Coming In Graphic Novel Form From Author Chuck Palahniuk

While it’s probably fair to say that most people are more familiar with the David Fincher-helmed 1999 adaptation, Chuck Palahniuk’s novel “Fight Club” still has its share of adoration. It’s been seventeen years (!!!) since the original novel’s publication and it seems the infamous author still has an itch to return the world of Tyler Durden and Project Mayhem.

Fight Club

While it’s probably fair to say that most people are more familiar with the David Fincher-helmed 1999 adaptation, Chuck Palahniuk’s novel “Fight Club” still has its share of adoration. It’s been seventeen years (!!!) since the original novel’s publication and it seems the infamous author still has an itch to return the world of Tyler Durden and Project Mayhem.

Over Comic-Con weekend, Palahniuk casually dropped the news that he’s working on a follow-up to the beloved 1996 novel and he confirmed it to fansite ChuckPalahniuk.net (via Collider). Here’s the twist though, the sequel will be in the form of a graphic novel or, rather, “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.”

And what about Jack and Marla? Though Palahniuk hasn’t mapped out the complete story he did share that the two are married (on the rocks of “the rocky coastline of middle-aged suburban boredom,” naturally) with a son but “when their little boy disappears, kidnapped by Tyler, Jack is dragged back into the world of Mayhem.”

Whether in film or in literature, follow-ups/sequels this far removed from its origins (say it with us, seventeen years!) have their work cut out for them, but we’ll try to keep an open mind. In any case, it’s still well off as a contractual obligation may prevent Palahniuk from launching anytime soon—he hopes “to launch it earlier than 2015.” What do you folks think? Cynical cash grab or something with some interesting potential? And are we going to see "Fight Club 2" eventually?
