Fight Club musical in the works (possibly with Trent Reznor)


When you watch Fight Club, do you think muscles or musicals, testosterone or theater, six packs or stage sets? (Really, we could do this all day.) Fear not, dear reader, because you no longer need to file David Fincher’s 1999 classic solely in each of those former designations.

This is because Fight Club is slated to become a Broadway musical. In a recent interview with, Fincher expressed interest in a truly theatrical interpretation of the film, which would hit the Great White Way in 2009, ten years after the film’s original release. There isn't much else going on with the project, aside from the fact that Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk has agreed to it and Trent Reznor has expressed interest in developing the music. Of course, we'll keep you posted as things develop.
