1999’s Fight Club directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton is getting the sequel in comics treatment with a new story set to continue in a ten issue maxi-series that begins a decade after the events in the film.
Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk announced the project revealing that the lead character is now married with a son and living an unhappy existence, at which point, Tyler somehow comes back into his life.
Palahniuk has commented that the idea of Fight Club 2 really started to emerge when he started thinking about middle age, fatherhood, and how unhappiness might creep in but for a whole bunch of different reasons to when we are younger.
Dark Horse Comics are publishing the series and have announced that Cameron Stewart (Catwoman, Batman and Robin) is doing the art with Matt Fraction (Uncanny X-Men, Hawkeye) taking a pass at reviewing Palahniuk’s script.
Other than picking up many years after the film wraps, it’s been teased that this story plans to delve deeper into the character Tyler, and that we’ll likely see more of Project Mayhem, with many other elements from the original film promised to return.
