Don't look now, but 'Fight Club' is getting a sequel

Chuck Palahniuk is not special. He is not a beautiful or unique snowflake. He's the same organic, decaying matter as everything else. But, he did make an appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego late last week to participate in panel discussions and, presumably, sign a bunch of soap for fanboys.

Chuck Palahniuk is not special. He is not a beautiful or unique snowflake. He's the same organic, decaying matter as everything else. Despite his mortality, Palahniuk did make an appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego late last week to participate in panel discussions and, presumably, sign a bunch of soap for fanboys. Among the news to come out of the discussions is the revelation that Palahniuk is planning on bringing Tyler Durden back from the proverbial dead.

Palahniuk confirmed the project on his official fan site, writing, “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.”

While the promise of future graphic novels doesn't mean we should start inquiring about Brad Pitt's 2015 schedule, it's safe to say that the world could benefit from some more Tyler Durden. [Los Angeles Times]
