American Psycho Series is coming

Fox Extended entwickelt eine American Psycho-Serie. Hört sich an, wie die letzte Staffel von Dexter und dürfte weder mit dem Film mithalten können, der bereits eine eher okayishe Umsetzung des fantastischen Buchs von Brett Easton Ellis war.

American Psycho is headed to television. FX has put in development an American Psycho drama series that takes place decades after the events in the 2000 movie starring Christian Bale and the novel on which the film was based. […] Described as an update of American Psycho, the drama series fast-forwards from the late 1980s, when the movie was set, to present day. It will feature serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, taking on a protégé in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal — a next-generation American Psycho.

Ob das Projekt in irgendeiner Form mit Easton Ellis Ankündigung eines Sequel-Romans hat, weiß ich nicht. Wahrscheinlich haben die Fox-Leute nur seine Tweets gelesen.
