And the remake train keeps right on chugging along. Next stop: a new take on Bret Easton Ellis’ 1991 satirical novel American Psycho! Excited? Confused? Bewildered? Feel the urge to check out the thickness of the paper used to make your business card?
According to Variety Lionsgate has tapped Noble Jones to write and direct a reimagining of American Psycho, which Mary Harron previously adapted in 2000 as a feature starring Christian Bale.
The project, which has not yet been greenlit at Lionsgate, is currently in the early stages of development at the studio.
Set in Manhattan during the Wall Street boom of the late 1980s, American Psycho concerns the daily life of Patrick Bateman, a wealthy investment banker by day who becomes a homicidal maniac by night.
Jones pitched the project to Lionsgate several months ago and recently turned in a script that explores how Bateman would fare in modern day Gotham.
A protege of David Fincher, Jones is a commericals and music video helmer who served as second unit director for the Boston-shot scenes in Fincher’s award-winning drama The Social Network.
