Reznor linked to Fight Club musical

Trent Reznor is reported to be working on a musical version of classic movie Fight Club.

The Nine Inch Nails frontman was reported to be involved in the project by a journalist covering last weekend’s Comic Con in San Diego.

Jeff Goldsmith says he was given the news by Chuck Plahniuk, who wrote the book that became the 1999 movie starring Brad Pitt. Director David Fincher is also said to be involved.

Goldsmith tweets: “So Chuch Palahniuk told me he’s working with David Fincher and Trent Reznor to do a Fight Club rock opera – an enhanced version of the film.”

Reznor won an Oscar in 2011 for his work on the soundtrack for The Social Network.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
