FX is Producing a Modern Re-Imagining of ‘American Psycho,’ Because There Aren’t Enough Serial Killers on TV

ImageLooks like pop culture is having a bit of a Bret Easton Ellis moment right now. Welcome back, early nineties! Love your overalls.

Following on the heels of The Canyons, the disastrous Easton Ellis-penned Lohan vehicle that flopped onto screens earlier this summer, we now have reports that the dark, twisted projections of Easton Ellis’ coke-addled brain will be gracing our screens once more. (And we aren’t referring to LiLo – she is, unfortunately, real as ever).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, American Psycho, Easton Ellis’ 1991 serial-killer novel that was adapted into a film starring Christian Bale, will be getting a TV “follow up” courtesy of FX.  In the update, Bateman will be in his mid-50s and will take on a protege who “will become every bit his equal, creating the next generation American Psycho.”

In case you haven’t been watching — and we don’t blame you — this is the the exact same plot as Dexter right now. And while it will be hard to outdo the sheer campy terribleness that is Season 8 of Dexter, Serial Killing 101 With Patrick Bateman (unofficial title) could easily end up being just as bad. Or worse! Remember what happened last time they tried to make an American Psycho spinoff?
