The black comedy classic American Psycho is getting a remake. You heard right folks, a film that is only 14 years old is being remade.
I am honestly sick to the back teeth of the amount of cult classic movies being remade and ultimately destroyed in an attempt to make money. In my opinion, only movies which are in black and white or are hard to watch by today's standards need a remake, and a respectful one at that.
American Psycho is by NO means hard to watch by today's standards, and I don't know how anyone could even consider it to be old or in need of a re imagining. How anyone thinks they could better Christian Bale's hilarious performance as Patrick Bateman is truly beyond me!
But wait, there's more.....
American Psycho The TV Series (2014)
"Building on the events portrayed in the cult movie American Psycho this TV show of the same name will center on avid Rolling Stone reader and serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his 50s, taking on an apprentice. Soon the pupil will be every bit as lethal as the master..."
OMG are you serious? Although there have been quite a few successful horror tv shows as of late, American Psycho surely won't be one of them. We've had The Walking Dead, Hannibal, Dexter, American Horror Story, Bates Motel etc, and they've all been great! But an American Psycho Tv series? No way!
"Soon the pupil will be every bit as lethal as the master" - Now if that isn't the most ridiculous plot you ever heard, then I don't know what is. We were clearly told in both the book and the movie that Bateman was mentally unstable, and it was unclear as to whether he actually killed all those people or not. The idea of having Bateman in his 50s train a pupil to kill others is one of the most stupid ideas I have ever heard, and I seriously hope that the show doesn't happen.
