<i>Fight Club</i> Musical Finally Happening?

David Fincher first brought up the idea of a Fight Club musical a couple years ago to everyone’s horror. Even author Chuck Pahalnuik was one of them and laughed off the notion of turning one of the most critically acclaimed novels and films in recent memory into a musical.

Now the author said, “I think it could be fascinating—it doesn’t horrify me. So I don’t see why not.” He went onto say that Fincher mentions it every so often and that it would happen eventually.

A lot of fans think it would be hard to translate the darkness of the source into a musical, but then again Sweeny Todd is a twisted musical that doesn’t have the kitschy appeal that most musicals hold.
