Chuck Palahniuk Confirms Fight Club Sequel

You don't talk about Fight Club, but maybe you can talk about Fight Club 2: The Sequel. Well, we're such renegades we're going to do it anyway.

Author Chuck Palahniuk has confirmed via several sources that he is working on a followup to the 1996 classic, which was adapted to create the Brad Pitt-starring movie of the same name three years later.

However, it seems this one will be a graphic novel, produced using artists from Marvel, DC and Dark Horse. Palahniuk confirmed it first during a panel at Comic-Con on Friday, in an email to his website operators, who also posted it on his tumblr, and then via his twitter feed.

Basically, it's definitely happening.

The statement read: "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. It will, of course, be dark and messy."

In terms of release date, Palahniuk continued, "due to contract obligations it can’t come to light for a while. Next year is Beautiful You, followed by the story collection. But since the Fight Club sequel will appear serialized in graphic form, my book publisher might allow me to launch it earlier than 2015."
