It’s a teaming of three greats that will have many freaking out – “Fight Club” author Chuck Palahniuk, acclaimed “The Lion King” stage director Julie Taymor, and acclaimed filmmaker David Fincher.
Fincher famously helmed the beloved 1999 film adaptation of Palahniuk’s “Fight Club”, and now a tweet from the author suggests that Taymor is “working with David Fincher on a ‘Fight Club’ rock opera.”
It sounds like Taymor, who has helmed a few films herself including “The Tempest,” “Titus,” “Across the Universe” and “Frida,” is spearheading whatever this “Fight Club: The Musical”-style project is. How much Fincher is involved, who knows at this point but expect more news about it soon.
Julie Taymor working with David Fincher on a FIGHT CLUB rock opera? You didn’t hear it from me. :) #SDCC
