FX and Lionsgate are looking to capitalize on the horror show trend by adapting ‘American Psycho’ for a new series. The new series is already being written by Ed Pressman, who will also be serving as the show’s executive producer. Ed Pressman and Allison Shearmu are both listed as producers.
Christian Bale played Patrick Bateman, the main character of the 2000 horror movie ‘American Psycho’, about a man who is delusional and can only be labeled as having a serious case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and a love for murder.
The series will be a little a different from the movie. It will follow the character of Patrick Bateman, in his 50’s. Bateman has trained a protege, who has become his equal.
I will say this, I’m really looking forward to ‘American Psycho’ the series. If Lionsgate and FX could only get Christian Bale to return to play one of his most iconic roles, I would be truly ecstatic! I will post an update when I know more.
