FX Developing TV Series Sequel to American Psycho


A few months back, author Brett Easton Ellis was publicly musing on Twitter about the idea of a sequel to his hit novel “American Psycho,” and it seems someone was paying attention.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate Television and FX are developing a TV sequel to the text with executive producer Allison Shearmur and writer Stefan Jaworski.

While the original novel, and film, depicted the Patrick Bateman character in the stockmarket boom of the ’80s and as a critique of the “yuppie” subculture, the sequel is said to follow Bateman in modern day America where he finds a protégé and sets up a “sadistic social experiment” to turn them into his equal.

No word on if Ellis is involved with the project at all, or if it will retain any connectivity to the 2000 Mary Harron film that starred Christian Bale, but check back here for more info on the project as we learn it.
