Christian Bale killed it — literally — as the charming yet incredibly alarming psychopath that was Patrick Bateman in American Psycho, based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel of the same name.
It's been 25 years since Ellis penned the book, and thankfully he'll be answering the one question we've been wondering about after all these years:
What is Patrick Bateman up to now?
"I often thought that this was a time Bateman could have also thrived in, especially with the advent of new technologies that could have aided him in his ghoulish obsession with murder, execution, and torture—and in ways to record them. And sometimes I think that if I had written the book in the past decade, perhaps Bateman would have been working in Silicon Valley, living in Cupertino with excursions into San Francisco or down to Big Sur to the Post Ranch Inn and palling around with Zuckerberg and dining at the French Laundry, or lunching with Reed Hastings at Manresa in Los Gatos, wearing a Yeezy hoodie and teasing girls on Tinder. Certainly he could also just as easily be a hedge-funder in New York: Patrick Bateman begets Bill Ackman and Daniel Loeb."
OK, Ellis. When are you going to grant us with an American Psycho sequel? The American Pyscho 2 film was absolutely terrible. We need another novel/film to make up for all that.
