Fight Club: The Musical

January 10, 2008 / Posted by:

This is just a bad….bad….idea. David Fincher had a little chat with MTV where he mentioned doing a Fight Club musical. It doesn’t look like he was joking. He wants to debut it on Broadway in 2009. That’s the 10th Anniversary of the movie. Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, is reportedly on board. Trent Reznor is considering writing the music.

Listen, I’m all about shirtless dudes singing and dancing, but this has “major embarrassment” written all over it. Think of the insurance costs alone. These Broadway actors will not like being hit over and over again and even with “fake stage fighting” it’s bound to happen. They are too precious and pretty for that. They are queens! Hearing Tyler Durden screech a high pitch “owwww” after accidentally being hit is not my idea of a good time.

Bail on this Fincher. Bail on it now! Spiderman the Musical with music by Bono is bad enough.
