Fight Club is to not only get a sequel in the form of a Fight Club 2 comic, but a musical/"rock opera" on Broadway.

Author Palahniuk apparently told a reporter of the plans at Comic-Con.

In the wrong hands this could be tragic, but apparently original director Fincher will be working on it, alongside Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, who has scored many of his movies and only missed out on doing Fight Club's due to other commitments.

In a now deleted tweet, Palahniuk suggested that Broadway director Julie Taymor is also on board, the woman behind the very successful The Lion King and enormous flop Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

Fight Club might seem a strange choice for a musical, but if they managed to turn American Psycho into one I guess anything's possible.

Palahniuk last year said that the upcoming Fight Club sequel comic would be "meta-fictional comment on the cultural response to the original", finding the protagonist bored and married to Marla Singer in the suburbs.
