    Just annouced by USA Today, Chuck Palahniuk is publishing Fight Club 2.

    "Palahniuk will be on a Fight Club panel with Fincher on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, but it was at last year's New York Comic Con where the author's loose lips cemented the project.

    "I messed up and said I was doing the sequel in front of 1,500 geeks with telephones," Palahniuk says. "Suddenly, there was this big scramble to honor my word."

    Fight Club 2 takes place alternately in the future and the past. It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and has a 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him."

As more and more people saw it who either missed it in theaters, or just didn't connect all the dots the first time around, word spread and it soon reached true cult-classic status.

    Watching it again recently, I started to recall other films that were late bloomers…
