More Fight Club

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.

So, Fight Club 2 in comics? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
