American Psycho is Getting a Remake

American Psycho for the Modern Audience

Lionsgate has hired screenwriter Noble Jones to write a new version of American Psycho. Jones was previously a second-unit director on David Fincher‘s The Social Network.

The film, which is based off of a book by Bret Easton Elis, was previously adapted in 2000, where it featured Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Rises) as the lead character. The book is described as:

In American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis imaginatively explores the incomprehensible depths of madness and captures the insanity of violence in our time or any other. Patrick Bateman moves among the young and trendy in 1980s Manhattan. Young, handsome, and well educated, Bateman earns his fortune on Wall Street by day while spending his nights in ways we cannot begin to fathom. Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront.

No word has been given on a release date.
