'American Psycho' Headed to TV Deadline
A new show being developed for TV offers an update on the 2000 Christian Bale feature film "American Psycho," Deadline.com reports.
The project, in development at FX, is set decades after the events that transpire in the movie. "Lionsgate TV, whose sibling Lionsgate Films was behind the 'American Psycho' feature, and FX Prods are producing the series shepherded by former Lionsgate Films head of production-turned producer Allison Shearmur and writer Stefan Jaworski," the story reports.
The report adds: "The drama series fast-forwards from the late 1980s, when the movie was set, to present day. It will feature serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, taking on a protege in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal -- a next-generation American Psycho."
Jaworski is writing and is also executive producing along with Shearmur and Ed Pressman, the report notes.
