Some movies become iconic as soon as they hit the big screen, and fans lap them up in no time. As time passes, people find them to be even more engrossing than the initial viewing, and there is no way we are letting their magic fade. Soon they become cult classics, and one such cult classic is Fight Club, helmed by David Fincher. The movie, which stars Brad Pitt in one of his career-defining performances, was released back in 1999 and hasn't left the pop culture consciousness ever since. A generation has passed, and a crop of new movies has emerged, but the one that stays on top is the 1999 release. Adapted from a book by the same name, the questions around a sequel to the film have always been prominent. It turns out the book actually has a sequel that never got made into a movie. Did you know?

There Is a Fight Club 2?

The novel by Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club, has been one of the biggest success stories of its time. The metanarrative of the movie and the book impressed everyone, giving the audience something fresh to look up to. Back in the day, fans were curious to know where the road beyond the climax led. There were many rumors about a sequel to the Brad Pitt starrer, but those never turned out to be true. However, that doesn't mean the books stopped. There is a Fight Club 2, and we never realized it. Read on to know everything you should about the same.

The interesting part about this fact is that a movie was never commissioned for the adaptation of Fight Club 2. However, one of the many reasons could be Chuck Palahniuk going super wild in the sequel book, where his graphic novel turned out to be an animal of its own, far from the first book. In this book, he even made a cameo himself by the end, and it turned out to be double the metanarrative of the first one. The book even ended with the promise of a third book.

About Fight Club 2

In Fight Club 2, we see the story taking a 10-year leap, and it is a graphic novel as a sequel to the original. Sebastian lives a life far away with Marla, and they haven't seen Tyler even once in a decade. Sebastian couldn't be happier, but Marla feels the opposite. The novel's future sees a descent into madness, and there is no redemption in sight. It sees Tyler become the leader of a terrorist group with nuclear weapons and Marla as the commander of a group of child soldiers.

While it all seemed like a far-fetched idea back in the day, the novel can now be adapted by many production houses as a continuation of the 1999 story. It could be a show, a film, or even a limited series. The fact that a sequel exists in some way has left many of us fascinated. Stay tuned to OTTplay for more information on this and everything else from the world of streaming and films.
