Fight Club musical??

01.08.2008
100%
Dave Fincher is pretty much my favourite film-maker around; I've seen SE7EN more times than I can remember, FIGHT CLUB is my all-time favourite flick, and I've spent heated nights with film elitists defending ALIEN 3. So, when the man says he has a plan for a FIGHT CLUB musical, I am totally down with it. There are no specifics at all, just the mention that "One of the things I want at the 10-year anniversary is to do "Fight Club" as a musical on Broadway. I love the idea of that." Now, I have no idea if he was cracking up while he said it, but whatever, there it is. And I know how you guys are gonna feel about this, why molest something so perfect? Sure, no one is going to play Tyler Durden or the Norton role as well as Pitt and... Norton, but so what? If my wife were suddenly in labor and I was in a room with David Fincher, a surgeon, and Jesus, I'd probably still let the Finch take a crack at getting that sucker out. You gotta have faith, guys. Check out MTV's two part interview over HERE, wherein the man discusses pretty much everything, from RENDEZVOUS WITH RAMA, to Matt Damon possibly playing Elliot Ness in TORSO.
Extra Tidbit: Fincher turned down 8MM to do FIGHT CLUB instead. There has perhaps never been a better decision made.

given the whole homoerotic undertone of the film, i guess it would fit nicely on broadway. If anyhting I cant wait to hear a song about Bob and his bitch tits !

Interesting.

But hasn't this rumour been floating around for quite some time now?

From 3 1/2 years ago...

EDIT: Ah hell, link won't copy properly. Just paste the article number on at the end of the link.

Wait just a second...

Alien3 "the best Alien movie out of four"...excuse me but: uh-uh. No. No. Err no. And no. Alien and Aliens are so far and away better than Alien3 or Alien Resurrection it's not even worth joking about. Please.

As for a Fight Club musical. Yeah fine.

What would be interesting is if Pitt DIDN'T turn down 8MM and Cage (who looks more like Norton, in my opinion) took FIGHT CLUB. Now THAT would have been cool.

A musical? Really? Well.....it could work, but I have a bad feeling. Still, hearing the rules done in song would definitely be an experience...

I met Chuck Palahniuk a couple of years ago at a book signing, and he was talking about the musical! How fun would that be? Wow, and interesting tidbit about Fincher turning down 8mm for Fight Club! Reminds me of Will Smith turning down the Matrix for Wild Wild West. Good move for Fincher! :)

Yes

One of the best movies into a musical, nice. But anyway I agree with you Alien3 in my opinion is the best Alien movie out of four by a long mile, I ain't a big alien guy and don't particularly like any of them but Alien3 I do like quite a bit.

A Musical

That would be hilarious. And the roles only have to be as hard to sing as the writers make them. So if they were smart they can write the songs easy enough for Pitt and Norton and let Brad Pitt have his broadway debut. Correct me if I'm wrong but Ed Norton's done some plays on broadway, right?
