This October will mark the 15th anniversary of David Fincher‘s brilliant film Fight Club. Although Fincher had impressed audiences with Seven and also had a cult hit with The Game, he took his style to the next level with Fight Club—a daring, irreverent, and influential film that came out of Chuck Palahnuik‘s terrific novel. It should be noted that the book fell under the umbrella of “un-adaptable”, but Fincher and screenwriter Jim Uhls made it work without losing the flavor or even much of the plot.
Comic-Con has announced that Fincher, Palahniuk, and Doubleday executive editor Gerald Howard will be in attendance to talk about how they brought the book to the screen. There will also be “special guests”, and while I’m sure some are already thinking about the stars, I’m wondering why Uhls isn’t on the panel. Whatever the case may be, I’m going to try my best to make this. The panel is on Saturday, July 26th from 7:00pm – 8:00pm in room 25ABC, a room that only holds about 480 people.
