This October will mark the 15th anniversary of David Fincher‘s film Fight Club.  Although Fincher had impressed audiences with Seven and also had a cult hit with The Game, he took his style to the next level with Fight Club—a daring, irreverent, and influential film that came out of Chuck Palahnuik‘s terrific novel. The book was deemed “un-adaptable” by many, but Fincher and screenwriter Jim Uhls made it work while maintaining the integrity of the story.

Comic-Con has announced that Fincher, Palahniuk, and Doubleday executive editor Gerald Howard will be in attendance to talk about how they brought the book to the screen.  There will also be “special guests”, and while I’m sure some are already thinking about the stars, I’m wondering why Uhls isn’t on the panel. The panel is on Saturday, July 26th from 7:00pm – 8:00pm in room 25ABC, a room that only holds about 480 people.
