‘American Psycho’ The Latest Film Getting A Remake

Because somewhere, this sounds like a good idea, I guess.

The Playlist is reporting that Lionsgate is set to get their hands on the Bret Easton Ellis novel, American Psycho, with the hopes of turning it into a film. This would be the second time the story has hit the big screen, and will be a remake of sorts for the beloved cult classic starring Christian Bale.

The film will penned by The Social Network second unit director Noble Jones, and it sounds like this is still very far off. No director or cast has been attached to the project, so while it seems as though all systems are go, don’t expect to be seeing this sucker anytime soon. Personally, I loathe this news. I found the original film to be absolutely fantastic, and the type of film that can, and very much still does, get a ton of love from the general public.

What do you think?

  1. And, if the film is a success….the star can be the next Batman. This is ridiculous.

  2. “American Psycho” doesn’t need a remake! Perhaps they can go back in time and unmake “American Psycho 2” instead?

  3. There should be some statute of limitations about not remaking a movie unless it is at least 30 years old…what could they possibly do to make it different in any way, shape, or form?
