Hi, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab...
Just typing that makes me giggle.
After hearing on the site that a rumor was flying concerning a musical based on fight club, I just had to go to the source.
Seems it's mostly true.
At a reading last night on the UW campus, Chuck answered a question from the audience about the fight club musical. He said that the same folks who financed the movie are tentatively behind it, as are Fincher and Reznor (who's agreed to do the soundtrack!). but...he did note that while they've got a bunch of talk going on and the promise of Reznor, they ain't got much else.
Chuck went on to say that most of the stuff they do with his writing he doesn't care about; he says he can't really control how the studios fuck with his characters or themes, so he just accepts the checks and goes on his way. Choke, Survivor and Invisible Monsters are all in some form gonna hit theaters (Choke first...starting filming in a couple months). BUT, he did say that he'd be personally involved in just about anything if he got to work with both Reznor and Fincher on the project (he said he'd even do "Fight Club on Ice" if that's what it took).
Anyway, take all that as you would from chuck's own mouth.
