American Psycho Sequel Series In Development At FX

6 posts in this topic

FX usually makes good dramas. The plot sounds interesting. Hopefully it will turn out better than the following.

 

 

Described as an update of American Psycho, the drama series fast-forwards from the late 1980s, when the movie was set, to present day. It will feature serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, taking on a protégé in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal — a next-generation American Psycho.

But in the original movie it was made clear he never killed anyone..it was his envy, comepetetive nature to one up and become the top dog in sales that leads him to have dellusional fantasies.

My favorite scene is when all the sales guys are looking at how awesome their new business cards are and Bateman gets livid when Jerad Leto's character busts out the best cardstock with gold foil trim...Bateman gives him a look that his life must end.

So how is he raising a protege' to become a serial killer? Not sure. Sounds awful and trying to draw the Dexter demographic as that series ends.

    • I assure you the high BP is not genetics. I was told the same. That's an excuse for them to sell you meds forever.
    • Senate asked to be briefed on Syria.  They asked to be briefed on NK.  That is what they do when someone is threatening action or acting and they know nothing.  Just because the someone asked for something doesn't mean why Trump is having an unusual briefing doesn't matter and there isn't a why to the timing of it.  Did he hold one like this for Syria after he bombed them and everyone in Congress asked to be briefed about WTF Trump was thinking big picture?
