Sources like Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that the TV series will be picking up years later and featuring the famously murderous exec Patrick Bateman (who was previously portrayed as Christian Bale) who is now in his mid-50s. Regardless of this fact, Bateman wants the madness to continue and seeks to take on a protege/apprentice that will carry on his legacy and “create a next generation of American Psycho” (The Hollywood Reporter).
And just in case you were that one person hoping that Bale might make an appearance of some sort, let me just say that I seriously doubt that happening.
I’m that asshole.
Moving on, even though I’m still scratching my head slightly at such news, it appears (at least by theory) that such a TV series could possibly do well, if Hannibal and Bates Motel are any indication.
But, I want to hear from you. What do you think about American Psycho being adapted for television? Let me know in the comments below!
