Fight Club, The Musical?

Could Chuck Palahniuk‘s (pictured) Fight Club be adapted into a musical? The rumor was tweeted on Palahniuk’s official Twitter feed this week.

It sounds like crazy-talk, but Bada** News reports that David Fincher (who directed the popular film adaptation of Palahniuk’s novel) wants to make a musical version. What do you think?

Here are more details: “Tonight The Social Network screened for members of the Screen Actors Guild, and at the Q&A afterwards Fincher mentioned that he’s been recently talking to Trent Reznor about doing the musical … I think it sounds like a stellar idea; it’s completely weird, it’s got the possibility of being excellent and best of all it should inspire a whole new generation to completely and totally miss the point of Fight Club.” (Via Random House)

Editor’s Note: Palahniuk did not tweet the rumor himself, as we stated in an earlier version of this post. The official feed is written by Dennis Widmyer. Thanks to Andrew Shaffer for the tip.
