Comic-Con: More ‘Fight Club’ Coming as Graphic Novel Sequels

Chuck Palahniuk hopes new books will continue story sometime by 2015.

Chuck Palahniuk wants to tell more “Fight Club’ stories. The author revealed at Comic-Con in San Diego that a series of sequel books will continue telling the tales of Tyler Durden.

Palahniuk appeared at Comic-Con to promote his upcoming novel, “Doomed,” out Oct. 8.

The author plans the “Fight Club” follow up as graphic novels set “ten years after the seeming end of Tyler Durden (played in the 1999 film version by Brad Pitt),” he confirmed to “The Cult,” a fan website dedicated to Chuck Palahniuk. “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 is currently meeting with artists and writers at Marvel, DC and Dark Horse to tackle the project. But the authors says contract obligations will keep the “Fight Club” books from coming to light for a while — most likely by 2015. A deal with a publisher won’t be completed until Palahniuk hammers out the story for the sequel books.

The author will first release “Beautiful You” next year, followed by a story collection.

While it only made $37 million in North America, and $100 million worldwide for 20th Century Fox, “Fight Club” has become a cult hit, continuing to sell well on homevideo.
