Fight Club 2 is coming out … soon! It feels like forever that I’ve been waiting to say that. But it’s almost here.
Here’s what just happened at the MTV Movie Awards Nostalgia book review: ‘A Clockwork Orange’ isn’t just a movie? What in Lorde’s name happened on ‘South Park’?
Now, when I say that to people who are not as Palahniuk-obsessed as me, they will just assume there is a new Fight Club movie coming out: Will Brad Pitt be in it? Will the narrator’s name ever be revealed? Will Fincher take a break from House of Cards to direct it?
Well, all your questions are irrelevant, because Fight Club 2 will be a novel. A graphic novel. Actually, it will be a monthly comic-book series turned graphic novel. Wait, what?
Even fair-weather fans probably know that Fight Club (the movie) is based on a novel by Chuck Palahniuk. But that was a regular old words-on-paper novel. When I found out about the graphic novel, I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting a traditional novel: The original was so great! “Who needs cartoons?” I thought. Let me picture Jack and Marla in my mind. Then, I could choose to envision them as I wish—that is, in Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter’s image. A graphic novel just seemed so … random.
Read more. I am pleased about this. You don’t wanna make a sequel after this brilliant movie and just risk ruining it.
