Chuck Palahniuk Working on ‘Fight Club’ Comicbook Series Sequel

Fight Club” author Chuck Palahniuk is working on a sequel to the novel as a 10-issue comicbook series for Dark Horse Comics.

The first novel, which David Fincher adapted into a movie starring Brad Pitt and Ed Norton in 1999, follows the story of an unnamed insomniac narrator and an underground fighting club.

Fight Club 2” is set to pick up 10 years after the ending of the 1996 book with the unnamed narrator now married to Marla Singer, who was played by Helena Bonham Carter in the movie, and struggling to be a good father to their nine-year-old son, Junior.

The Tyler Durden character will also return, where Palahniuk says readers will learn of his true origins. Pitt played Durden in the film.

“Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind,” he said.

Most of the characters from the first book (and film) will return in the comicbook series, as well as Project Mayhem.

Palahniuk and Fincher will be on a “Fight Club” panel on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con 2014.

The maxiseries is illustrated by Cameron Stewart and will debut in May 2015.

USA Today first reported the news.
