New info came in about this project...
Mary Harron’s 2000 film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’
AMERICAN PSYCHO, starring Christian Bale as murderous Patrick Bateman, is still
fondly regarded by genre fans, and the story is headed to the Broadway musical
stage (with former Fango scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa writing the book), but
now a new feature of the savagely satiric slasher story is in the works.
Variety reports that Noble Jones (pictured) has been signed by
Lionsgate to write and direct a new AMERICAN PSYCHO movie, which has
nonetheless not yet been officially greenlighted. Jones’ scenario explores how
Patrick Bateman deals with living in modern New York City, when his investment-banker
job is presumably not nearly as secure as it was back when the novel and first
movie came out. A 2nd-unit director on David Fincher’s THE SOCIAL NETWORK,
Jones has also directed and served as DP on documentaries, commercials and
music videos, but his most pertinent experience is an early gig working as an
in-house filmmaker for the New York City Department of Corrections.
