Comic-Con: Chuck Palahniuk announces ‘Fight Club’ sequel

July 22, 2013 | 11:49 a.m.

Chuck Palahniuk is penning a follow-up to his hit novel “Fight Club,” which was famously adapted into the 1999 David Fincher film of the same name, the author revealed at Comic-Con over the weekend. The sequel will take the form of a serialized graphic novel.

Palahniuk confirmed the project on his official fan site, writing, “It will likely be 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. Jack is oblivious. Marla is bored. Their marriage has run aground on the rocky coastline of middle-aged suburban boredom. It’s only when their little boy disappears, kidnapped by Tyler, that Jack is dragged back into the world of Mayhem.”

Palahniuk’s breakout book, “Fight Club” was published in 1996 and tells the story of an insomniac office drone who meets a mysterious soap maker and starts an underground brawling group. The film version stars Edward Norton, Brad Pitt and Helena Bonham Carter.

In Palahniuk’s statement, he said he’s still working out the story of the graphic novel and hasn’t started courting a specific publisher.

The “Fight Club” sequel will follow Palahniuk’s next book, “Beautiful You,” to be published next year.
