Trent Reznor and David Fincher to Create Rock Opera Adaptation of ‘Fight Club’

by Alyssa Pereira, CBS Radio San Francisco

You could easily say that Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor is an eclectic musician. The frontman and composer has tried his hand in film scoring (rather successfully, might we add) with films like The Social NetworkGone Girl, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and it looks like once again, Reznor is expanding his horizons.

According to podcast host Jeff Goldsmith and author Chuck Palahniuk, Reznor is teaming up with director David Fincher (who worked with him on the above projects) for a musical production of sorts: a Broadway-bound rock opera adaptation of the Palahniuk book Fight Club.

Goldsmith broke the news at Comic-Con over the weekend, which Palahniuk later confirmed.

Also reportedly attached to the project is theater director Julie Taymor.
