Fight Club II

No word yet on if it will be adapted for film, but it seems highly likely given the popularity and cash cow it would rake in at the box office.

Interesting twist with the graphic novel choice for the follow up.

Quote:

FIGHT CLUB 2 IS HAPPENING

We know because Chuck Palahniuk is breaking the first rule.


Chuck Palahniuk is making a sequel to the schizo-trippy novel on contemporary manhood that inspired teenaged boys everywhere to fistfight in the name of anarchy. Instead of traditional fiction, the second installment will be a maxiseries by Dark Horse Comics. Fight Club 2 debuts in May 2015 as a 10-issue graphic novel illustrated by Cameron Stewart.

Palahniuk broke the news in an interview with USA Today, but he sealed the fate of Fight Club 2 last year, when he accidentally mentioned a sequel at New York’s Comic Con.

"I messed up and said I was doing the sequel in front of 1,500 geeks with telephones," Palahniuk told USA Today. "Suddenly, there was this big scramble to honor my word."

In his virtuosic fashion, Palahniuk will use juxtaposition in Fight Club 2 to flashback to younger years. However, the new plot will focus on the unnamed narrator ten years after his creation of Project Mayhem, which is still kicking. The now middle-aged father tries to raise his 9-year-old boy – son to wife Marla Singer – but finds himself repeating the same failures of his father.

The first novel was "such a tirade against fathers – everything I had thought my father had not done combined with everything my peers were griping about their fathers," Palahniuk told USA Today. "Now to find myself at the age that my father was when I was trashing him made me want to revisit it from the father's perspective and see if things were any better and why it repeats like that."



What began with telephoning geeks may again end in thousands of angst-ridden pubescent’s pounding on each other, but the same cultural fate as the first novel seems doubtful. Palahniuk’s tone of responsible fatherhood sounds more like impending closure than Project Mayhem.

Nevertheless, a second movie is food for thought. David Fincher’s 1999 adaptation starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt was one of the most talked about movies of the 90’s.The cult film remains one of the greatest guy movies of all time, and modern Hollywood rarely ignores the financial opportunity to capitalize on this kind of renown.

Whether the graphic novel lives up to the clout of its predecessor remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: Chuck Palahniuk and David Fincher made a masterful duo.

I'll even drag my ass to the theatre for this one as long as it's directed by David Fincher. The original is still one of my favorite movies.

EDIT: if it is adapted to film

Great movie. Im down with anything Fincher makes.

The original movie was a flop at the time.

Cameron Stewart is a baus (though a lot of the times I feel like his stuff is a bit too cartoony for more gritty/serious stories).

That one really made me think.

How much time did I waste making minimum wage in high school just to buy a pair of jeans or a shirt with the right label on it?

The whole flick is full common sense that takes two or three viewings to really digest...

It's jam packed with stuff like this. It's hilarious how he is buying all of that IKEA crap that is costing a fortune, or the fact that he knew the special name for the blanket which I cannot recall.

I wonder what Fight Club II is going to say about the age of Facebook and social media?

I never really viewed this as a movie that lent itself to a quality sequel.

It had a legit impact on me in exactly that way. It pointed out how superficial and materialistic we are... drowning ourselves in 'stuff' but not actually living with any purpose of personal fulfillment. We slave away to meet expectations far more often than we do to pursue our own interests.

"The things you own end up owning you."

"It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything."

"This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time."

It got to me big time. Love this film. Many people called it nihilistic but I think they all missed the point entirely.

Exactly.

It's about pain being the only thing in life that truly wakes you up to what's important so you can appreciate living...
