David Fincher has talked for many years about producing a Fight Club Musical on Broadway as a means to celebrate the film’s tenth anniversary. That 2009 date has come and gone, and still Fincher has continued to talk about the possibility. I’ve just assumed it was one of those dream projects that would never come into fruition. But the project seems to still be in active development, and with Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk doing press for the Fight Club 2 comic book series, we now have more details on the Fight Club Rock Opera.

I’m a huge fan of author Chuck Palahniuk and Fight Club is one of my favorite films of all time. To say I’m excited to see what the comic book sequel brings might be an understatement. I’ve decided to wait and binge read the Fight Club 2 comics after the 10-issue mini series is published in full.
Dark Horse Comics is announcing today that bestselling novelist Chuck Palahniuk will be a character in Issue 3 of the series, on sale July 22nd 2015. The issue will see Palahniuk become “a reoccurring presence along with his iconic creations Tyler Durden and Marla Singer.” Where and how will we see Chuck Palahniuk in Fight Club 2? More details in the press release, after the jump.

Later this month, author Chuck Palahniuk will continue the story of his iconic novel turned film Fight Club in comic book form. The series, Fight Club 2, will follow Tyler Durden ten years after the events of the book but it won’t be the character’s only appearance. Palahniuk is bringing back Durden for a short story in his new collection, Make Something Up: Stories You Can’t Unread. Durden appears in a story called Expedition which takes place before the events in Fight Club. Read more about the Fight Club prequel below. Read More »
UPDATE: The entire show is now online and on sale. Click here. Original article follows.
The sequel is the ultimate catch 22. If you think too hard about setting one up, you won’t concentrate enough on the first film and it won’t warrant it. On the flip side, if you focus all your energy on a single, great film, a sequel will be in demand you may leave yourself without a place to take it.
These days, way more films fall into column A than column B and it’s a major problem in Hollywood. What about the good old days? The days when a studio would release an awesome movie, fans would love it, and that would be it? No sequel needed. Well, iam8bit in Los Angeles is harkening back to those days, but with a twist, for their next art exhibit: Sequel. Around 50 pieces of art are featured in the show, all for sequels that never happened. Follow ups to movies we know and love – Spaceballs, The Rocketeer, Labyrinth, Fight Club, Blade Runner etc. – made just for fun.
Sequel opens in Los Angeles on November 13 and, below, we’ve got a bunch of posters from the show including exclusive sequels to Hobo With A Shotgun, Videodrone and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Read More »
Daniel Silva has edited a 17-minute tribute to filmmaker David Fincher, artfully splicing together the director’s nine feature films including Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This video tribute does not include Fincher’s Alien 3 (because, you know why), his 1985 documentary The Beat of the Live Drum (probably because it isnt a narrative feature film) or his upcoming film Gone Girl. The edit is not just a music video like most of the tribute videos you see these days, including lengthy bits of scenes. That said, the short does include “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails and “Oraculum” by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross. Watch Daniel Silva’s The Films of David Fincher now embedded after the jump.

Technically, the first and second rules of Fight Club are that you don’t talk about Fight Club. They don’t say anything about the Fight Club sequel, so Chuck Palahniuk isn’t breaking any vows by discussing his new project.
Officially announced by Palahniuk earlier this year, Fight Club 2 is a ten-issue comic book series that picks up with the unnamed protagonist of Fight Club about ten years later. Take a peek at some artwork and get the latest details from Palahniuk after the jump.
