Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk revealed back in July that he was working on a sequel and, instead of a movie or even a traditional book, he was planning on doing it as a series of graphic novels.
Well, we have an update. Palahniuk has revealed new information which includes a possible story line:
The sequel will be told from the– at first– submerged perspective of Tyler Durden as he observes the day-to-day tedium of the narrator’s life. Because 20th Century-Fox created the convention of calling the protagonist Jack, I’m calling him Cornelius. He’s living a compromised life with a failing marriage, unsure about his passion for his wife. The typical midlife bullshit. Likewise, Marla is unsatisfied and dreams of accessing the wild man she’d once fallen in love with. She tampers with the small pharmacy of drugs that her husband needs to suppress Tyler, and– go figure– Tyler reemerges to terrorize their lives.
So, midlife crisis and marital boredom leads to mayhem in the form of Tyler Durden? I wonder if any Ikea furniture will be making an appearance. We’ll have to wait until approximately 2015 to find out. There’s also a Fight Club 2 news page on Chuck’s site if you want to follow along.
I am Cornelius’ confused interest.
