‘American Psycho’ Headed for Broadway

American Psycho, the controversial novel by Bret Easton Ellis, that was also made into a movie starring Christian Bale, is now set to become a Broadway play.

Let the creepiness, cynicism, and darkness continue. Could Bale reprise his pre-Dark Knight role as the even darker, pyscopathic anti-hero Patrick Bateman?

Controversial social satire “American Psycho” is headed for Broadway, eight years after the novel became a movie starring Christian Bale, the companies adapting the book to the stage said on Tuesday.

The 1991 book from author Bret Easton Ellis centres on young Wall Street investment banker Patrick Bateman, an obsessively materialistic yuppie who by night commits murders while losing himself in drugs and prostitution.

The Johnson-Roessler Company, The Collective and XYZ Films partnered to acquire, develop and produce the live stage version of the novel, the companies said.
