American Psycho Series Being Developed At FXBy: Jeremy Muncy - September 10, 2013
American Psycho wasn’t for everyone, but you can’t argue that it is a cult classic… but does it really need to be a television series?
It’s being reported that FX is developing a series that will act as the direct sequel to American Psycho. If you’re wondering about that Mila Kunis sequel, well like everyone else they’re acting as if it never happened. The series will supposedly focus on Christian Bale’s Patrick Bateman, with some minor changes to the setting of the story.
“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-50’s 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.”
With series like Hannibal and Bates Motel doing well, it only makes sense for FX to scoop up American Psycho and try to take it to series.
