American psychopath will be a television series on Lionsgate TV. Directed by Mary Harron using a script co-written by Harron and Guinevere Turner, American psychopath played Christian Bale as serial killer Patrick Bateman. The film was highly praised by horror fans and was first released in 2000. The film has maintained a strong cult status over the past two decades.
In a new interview with DeadlineLionsgate Television chairman Kevin Beggs discussed in detail the company’s plans for their 35mm projects. Beggs spoke about the importance of partnering with highly creative filmmakers to produce high quality content. This strategy led to the production of the adaptation of the American Psycho TV series.
‘We just finished Dear whites which was a very good experience, Blindspots coming, American psychopath is under development, ”said Beggs in the interview.
For the horror fans, Beggs also revealed that a Saw TV series are also possible, although nothing is officially in production on that front. It’s possible Lionsgate is waiting to see the release of the franchise’s ninth installment, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, will be performing in theaters when released. The film will hit theaters on May 14.
“We are always exploring what we can do on television with something like the Saw franchise, so that’s a conversation, ”added Beggs.
Set in the 80’s, American psychopath followed Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, a New York investment banker who lives a double life as a sadistic serial killer who hunts down prostitutes, co-workers and random victims. It is based on Bret Easton Ellis’ novel of the same name, released in 1991. In a particularly memorable scene that horror fans often quote, Bateman murders a colleague named Paul (Jared Leto) with an ax while screaming for Huey. Lewis and the News music.
There was a sequel to the movie, American Psycho II: All American Girl, which was released in 2002. The sequel that was almost unrelated to the original film starred Mila Kunis at the peak of her run on That ’70s show. The film was critically panned, with Ellis denouncing the film and Kunis later expressing embarrassment about her involvement. She also revealed the reason why American Psycho II had little in common with the first film.
“Please – someone will stop this,” Kunis told MTV in 2016, referring to a rumored third installment. Write a petition. When I did the second, I didn’t know it would American Psycho II. It should have been a different project, and it’s been re-edited, but, ooh … I don’t know. Bad. “
It is not clear at this point whether the American psychopath TV series will reimagine the events from the novel and the original movie, or if it will serve more as a true sequel in the same universe. No casting information has been revealed yet, so we’ll have to wait for more information on that front as well. In any case, let’s hope Lionsgate has learned from the mistakes of American Psycho II. This news comes from Deadline.
