This scene was actually only partly staged. David Fincher said he wanted to make this scene more realistic, so he decided for the punch to be real. He called Brad over and told him he had to take a punch, Brad was fine with it, Norton on the other hand was damn worried. Fincher quoted - “Brad was fine with it, he was joking about the matter, he was saying certain sacrifices should be made, but Edward…damn, he was worried, hitting Brad was the last thing he wanted to do, he didn’t want to punch him too hard, but he didn’t want to make it seem unreal either. So he finally built up the courage to hit Brad and he knew he had one shot. So we started filming and when the time came Norton got ready and he hit Brad…right in the ear, I was laughing my ass off, Brad was saying - “Why the ear man?” and that was also improvised. The punch that followed afterwards, when Tyler hits the Narrator was staged though. That’s the story.
Every single day I wake up in the morning, and I wonder if this is some kind of amazing dream that’s gonna end all of a sudden. And, you know, I’m gonna wake up and be somewhere else.
