Paul Schrader Puts Out His Bait
More sharks are swimming our way, this time being led by the writers of Taxi Driver and American Psycho. Okay, you had us at hello. Read on for details.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, iconoclastic filmmaker Paul Schrader (The Exorcist: Dominion) is teaming up with nihilistic author Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) for the shark-infested psychological horror project Bait.
Schrader (pictured right), the writer behind Taxi Driver and Raging Bull and the writer-director of American Gigolo, has signed to direct the picture and will collaborate with Ellis on the latest draft of the script, which follows a young man itching to take his revenge against the wealthy. The man, who works at a posh beach club, angles his way onto a yacht filled with the obnoxious elite, commandeering it into waters filled with the finned man-eaters.
The producers are aiming for a November start in Puerto Rico with casting beginning immediately.
