A mentally unhinged yuppie (Christian Bale) in 1980s New York submits to an uncontrollable bloodlust.
The movie that first made us sit up and take notice of the acting chops of Christian Bale and forever changed our perception of the '80s pop song "Hip to Be Square" by Huey Lewis and the News, American Psycho, is getting a modern-day remake. According to Variety, Lionsgate is "in the early stages of development" on a new, low-budget adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' 1991 dark psychological thriller and satirical novel about a yuppie serial killer that inspired the Bale-led movie. The project was originally pitched to Lionsgate by commercial director and David Fincher protége Noble Jones, who recently submitted a script to the studio and is on tap to direct.
