‘American Psycho’ TV sequel?

Latest news (courtesy of IMDB.com and EW.com – Inside TV news ) tells us that FX is developing a TV-series as a sequel to American Psycho (novel and the film from 2000), with the official logline; “In the new drama series, iconic serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50’s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, takes on a protégé “. To me, this just sound awesome!

But I also think that, without Christian Bale reprising his classic lead, this will be a failure. Bale brings the character out of the book and beyond with his magnetic portrayal and he lays definite claim to the character, giving anyone aspiring to fill his shoes the undertaking of a lifetime. With that said,

If (and that’s pretty much the biggest IF in Hollywood-history, seeing as Bale is one of the hottest male names today) he were to strike a deal with the creators of the series and actually sign on to do it (which I’ve heard nothing about yet), I don’t think TV will ever be the same again!

There you go, a little short-short about what’s happening in my mind about this specific subject. Let me know what you think, let’s make this a debate! And stay tuned for there’ is a lot more to come! But until then… Peace!

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
