Variety: Lionsgate to remake ‘American Psycho’

Lionsgate has tapped Noble Jones to write and direct a reimagining of “American Psycho” that will go back to Bret Easton Ellis’ 1991 satirical novel, which Mary Harron previously adapted in 2000 as a feature starring Christian Bale. Low-budget project, which has not yet been greenlit at Lionsgate, is currently in the early stages of development at the studio.

Jones pitched the project to Lionsgate several months ago and recently turned in a script that explores how Bateman would fare in modern day Gotham.
A protege of David Fincher, Jones is a commericals and music video helmer who served as second unit director for the Boston-shot scenes in Fincher’s award-winning drama “The Social Network.”

    They can take a 're-imagining' of American Psycho and shove it up their ass!  NO way, NO how and I would never watch it.  American Psycho is just…for christ's sake, are they going to 're-imagine' Citizen Cane?  Some things just cannot and should not be done.  At least not for like 40 years.
