Chuck Palahniuk confirmed today that he is currently working on a sequel to the bestselling novel “Fight Club”, which obviously spun into the David Fincher film we all know and love. According to the people in charge of managing his website, he has been in discussion with Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse, all of which are jumping at the opportunity to publish the sequel. Palahniuk said that it will likely be a series of comics that update us on Tyler’s status ten years after his apparent demise. For all the details, hit the jump.

From Palahniuk’s email:

“It’s true. Chelsea Cain has been introducing me to artists and creators from Marvel, DC and Dark Horse, and they’re walking me through the process. 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. 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.

…We haven’t started to court a specific publisher, not until I hammer out the complete story.”

    What a bad idea. Love the book and the movie, but both ended well. Why continue the story and fuck it up? That book never needed a sequel. I smell the lure of money.

      Given that he’s doing it as a comic book, I doubt it’s for monetary gain. Not the most lucrative of industries.

    Not interested in that. Give us a sequel to “Damned” instead !

    Could turn out good, or it could be horrible. The original movie wrapped up great, but I always did wonder where they went from there. I still don’t see how he wouldn’t be in jail though.

      The ending of the book is very very different (and much better in my opinion) so the film ending would be irrelevant to a literary sequel.
