Palahniuk finally dishes 'Fight Club' sequel details

Author Chuck Palahniuk got "Fight Club" fans pretty excited when he told the crowd at last year's Comic-Con he was writing a sequel to the popular novel. Nine months later we finally know something about it.

USA Today revealed the book's sequel, "Fight Club 2," will be a 10-issue graphic novel series produced by Dark Horse Comics and will pick up a decade after the original book left off. The nameless insomniac narrator is married to equally-disturbed Marla Singer, and the couple have a 9-year-son son named Junior but don't look too excited about it. 

For now, fans won't be seeing a ripped Brad Pitt or busted-up Edward Norton pummel faces into pavement like they did in the 1999 cult film adaptation, but we can always hope there's some demand for a film sequel, too.

As for the other characters in the original, don't worry: most are coming back. Even Project Mayhem is slated to stick around. And Palahniuk said he plans on diving into the origins of Tyler Durden.
