'American Psycho' is Suddenly Everwhere

The second coming of Bret Easton Ellis's tale of murder and carnage.

There's no real way to understand these sort of things, but, as if by magic, Bret Easton Ellis's career-making horror phantasia American Psycho is suddenly on the collective minds of people everywhere. Yesterday, Varietyannounced that a re-boot of the film, first released in 2000 starring Christian Bale and Chloe Sevigny, is in the works. This after mumblings that Broadway would be welcoming an all-singing, all-dancing iteration of the tale of axe-wielding Patrick Bateman. Even the fashion world is on board with ironic American Psycho vs. Occupy Wall Street-themed editorials, courtesy of those hipster pranksters at Vice. We've spent the past few hours pondering how this will all turn out. Is this going to be good? Bad? So-bad-it's-good? Can Patrick Bateman win a Tony? For killing people? So many questions. At least one thing is for certain--Ellis approves of the film remake, just as long as Scott Disick (the eerily waxy husband to Kourtney Kardashian, duh) to play the bloodthirsty maniac. Touche, Mr. Ellis, touche.
