I Fight Club , varför är utpressningsscenen annorlunda i filmen från versionen i boken? Var detta skript ändrat för manus eller snarare regissören? Vad var motivationen här för skiftet? I boken sker detta i kapitel 15:
Tyler first goes to the union president of his job as projectionist. When Tyler speaks to the Union President, this huge fellow beats the shit out of Tyler, much alike the movie scene in Lu's basement. Immediately after this, Tyler sets the narrator to go to the man in charge at the Pressman Hotel were he's a waiter. So the narrator does his blackmail, but at the hotel (not the insurance company like in the movie), and gives some interesting strong lines, even almost repeated from Tyler's lines: "You have so much, and I have nothing." It leaves a harsher and more class-political idea than in the movie.
Slutet har några orsaker till ändringar . Kanske kan något mer sammanhang tjäna för att förstå andra allmänna skillnader som kan göra romanen mer politisk och nedlagd ).
- in the novel it is unclear if the Narrator is truly free of Tyler. Some scholars have suggested that the last chapter [of the book] may even be narrated by Tyler instead of the Narrator. The implications of such an ending in the film may have been seen by the filmmakers to be too depressing for movie-going audiences.
- Fincher himself has admitted that he wanted the audience to like Tyler but not to miss him when he is gone. Tyler's commitment to his ideology is still strong in the film but Pitt's Tyler is not quite as dark as Palahniuk's.
- When Tyler describes the hunter-gatherer/pre-agrarian society he wishes to return to there is the impression that Tyler vision, while still dangerous, is ultimately intended to free people. In the novel, Tyler gives almost the exact same speech to the Narrator but it is clear that this new world will be led by Tyler.

In the novel Project Mayhem was to slow down humanity's technological advancement by artificially causing another Dark Age. This is referred to in the film, however, in the bedroom scene after the car crash.
