Fight Club writer's next

05.27.2003

The brilliant mind of FIGHT CLUB author Chuck Palahniuk is firing on all cylinders once again. The writer spoke to Erie Entertainment recently about all things Chuck, including a screenplay that has been bouncing around in his head for a while now called AMBITION. The following is how the man describes his story. You can click on one of the many faces of Chuck below to read the full article.

It's an idea I have had forever about a failed artist, who's married and his job is he mixes paint in a big hardware store. And he is approached by this little cartel of collectors, curators and art critics and they say 'Hey this hot-shot artist who you knew in college, who is the new Andy Warhol, his current work is really destroying the value of his early work, he is losing money and is damaging our investment. We will make you the next big famous artist if you kill him for us.' And he says 'No, I am not killing anybody.' And they say 'Would it help if we told you that he killed to get where he is at…and that he is having an affair with your wife. So this guy, the first act, is that he ends up killing this other artist. In the second act he ends up being roped into being a professional killer and traveling the world in this dark comedy, killing other famous artists who reach the end of their productive period in order to boost the value of their earlier work. Because as soon as an artist dies the value of their work just explodes. So it's this dark comedy about him, a professional killer/artist.
