TV & FILM

Get this. They're going to make a sequel to Fight Club, but it's not going to be a movie. It's going to be a graphic novel.
In other news, from now on, the cart goes before the horse, apples and oranges can be compared, and your dog is going to walk you. (That is to say, pretty much everything is backwards and/or upside down.)
Okay, so yes, Fight Club was actually a novel written by Chuck Palahniuk before it became a movie by David Fincher and, eventually, a poster on the wall of your college dorm room. But still, these days you don't see a lot of books becoming movies and movies becoming graphic novels. The sourcing of ideas pretty much moves in one direction—toward the cineplex. That being said, you know that Fight Club 2 will eventually become a film, because that would make money, and people in the industry like making money.
So where will the sequel pick up? Here's what author Palahniuk had to say:
It will likely be a series of books that update the story 10 years after the seeming end of Tyler Durden. Nowadays, Tyler is telling the story, lurking inside Jack, and ready to launch a comeback. 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 also added that the whole thing will be 'dark and messy'—you know, just in case you didn't draw that obvious conclusion from the 'kidnapped child' thing.
Look for Fight Club the comic book—err, I mean graphic novel—some time in 2015.
