“Fight Club” is one of the most iconic movies of all time. It has almost been two decades since the cult classic hit the big screen. Will producers revisit it soon? Will the movie finally get a sequel? Will the cast of “Suicide Squad” really come together to make this happen?
According to TheMarySue.com, a sequel for the 1999 movie is not currently being discussed. However, the cast of the upcoming DC movie seems to have used it as an inspiration. “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer reportedly made his actors literally fight each other before rehearsing scenes for the movie.
“It wasn’t a normal rehearsal,” Ayer explained. “We would talk about their lives, their history, and really got them to open up as people to each other. I also had them fight. I also had them fight each other. You learn a lot about who a person really is when you punch them in the face. It gets rid of a lot of the actor stuff.”
The director’s “Fight Club” method is unconventional. Did it better help the actors get into character? Fans might have to wait for the movie to premiere to find out. “Suicide Squad” hits theaters on August 4, 2016.
Meanwhile, Chuck Palahniuk talked about “Fight Club 2.” In an interview with ComicBook.com, the author teased what fans can expect from his long-awaited comic book follow-up. “With Fight Club 2, I got to share in that evil creative joy,” he explained. “With Scott Allie and Cameron Stewart, I was always pushing. [I was always asking questions, like] ‘Can we depict a condom filled with stale urine, held by a child?’ or ‘Can we depict Amazon.com selling nuclear warheads?’… So far I’ve heard very little from readers, but praise or condemnation pale when compared with the fun of creating.”
He also talked about his inspiration for the “Fight Club” sequel. “I’m tired of obvious social engineering… My readers are smart. They don’t need to be spoon fed an agenda,” he said. “Here we’ve also got candy and drugs and sentimental rose petals obscuring the bits of profundity and insight. Just as such things preclude awareness in real life”
