Never talk about Fight Club they say, but many are anticipating in excitement to the sequel that will be released in 2015

Brace yourself. In under a year Fight Club 2 is slated to hit bookstore shelves around the country.


The popular 1996 novel “Fight Club,” which was made into an even-more-popular film starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, will soon get a sequel in the form of a new comic book series.


Author Chuck Palahniuk will be working on the 10-issue comic book series

For now, the sequel won't feature Brad Pitt in a Hollywood film, but will instead be published as a limited series of 10 comics published by Dark Horse Comics.


It won't be a new film (yet?)—Dark Horse is publishing this new story in a 10-issue maxiseries illustrated by Cameron Stewart, starting in 2015.

"Fight Club 2” will unfold in both the future and the past. “It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and has a 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him,” Truitt wrote.


According to Dark Horse Comics, Fight Club 2 will take place 10 years after the ending of Palahnuik's book, when the narrator realises he and his violent, manipulative companion Tyler are the same person and he is reunited with con-woman Marla Singer after she has been kidnapped.

Most people were introduced to Tyler by David Fincher's 1999 film, which presented some challenges while also lending Stewart and Co. artistic flexibility. "The thing I find really liberating about it is that, because it's a sequel to the novel, not to the film, we have a little bit more freedom to play with the visuals," Stewart said. "It's a good thing and it's a bad thing, because the film is so ingrained in popular culture the image of Tyler Durden is Brad Pitt — and we cannot make it look anything like Brad Pitt for various legal reasons."


The original Fight Club tells the story of an everyday man who forms a fight club together with Tyler Durden, a soap maker. The novel was then adapted into a movie and became a cult hit amongst moviegoers.

Norton plays the unnamed protagonist, an "everyman" who is discontented with his white-collar job. He forms a "fight club" with soap maker Tyler Durden, played by Pitt, and they are joined by men who also want to fight recreationally. The narrator becomes embroiled in a relationship with Durden and a dissolute woman, Marla Singer, played by Bonham Carter.


The fighters are subject to eight rules, with the first two emphasising to NEVER talk about Fight Club. These rules have become memorable lines in pop culture.

1st RULE: You do not talk about FIGHT CLUB.
2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about FIGHT CLUB.
3rd RULE: If someone says "stop" or goes limp, taps out the fight is over.
4th RULE: Only two guys to a fight.
5th RULE: One fight at a time.
6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes.
7th RULE: Fights will go on as long as they have to.
8th RULE: If this is your first night at FIGHT CLUB, you HAVE to fight.
