    Fight Club Rock Opera/Trent Reznor is working on a score

    http://www.broadway.com/buzz/181024/...her-word-more/



    David Fincher Working on Fight Club Rock Opera
    The long-in-the-works Fight Club musical may actually make it to the boards. Chuck Palahniuk, who penned the 1996 novel Fight Club, told the WSJ that David “Fincher is so dedicated to producing Fight Club as a rock opera now.” Fincher helmed the Brad Pitt and Edward Norton-led 1999 film adaptation. Apparently the director has been consulting with Julie Taymor (The Lion King) about the stage show, and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is working on a score. However, we still have a while to wait for the story of a secret underground community where men come to fight each other to come to the stage; Palahniuk estimates that “at the earliest it would be two years out.”

    Just like in 2008. And in 2004. I'll be less skeptical when Trent says anything at all about it ever, which he hasn't, except in 2004 when he told me he wasn't doing it. If he does say he's going to do it, that's a step in the right direction. There's a lot he says he's going to do, and some of it gets done - not something I'm saying to knock him, but that's just how he gets things done. Take on a lot of cool projects, finish some of them.

    He simply "follows the rules" (1st rule, to be specific)

    How would this even work? Does it mean Trent is collaborating with Chuck for lyrics as wouldn't Chuck be responsible for the story? Will be strange to have TR making songs for other people to sing
