American Psycho was a flop. It was a bomb. It did not succeed. It just flat out didn’t make money when it was initially released. But thanks to a heaping dose of violence, 80’s culture coming back into style, and a deeply committed performance Christian Bale the film has gained massive cult status. The film is so beloved and revered that FX is bringing a sequel to the show to the small screen.
The subject of the American Psycho tv show is, unfortunately a tad obvious. FX is saying that it will follow an older Patrick Bateman “taking on a protégé in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal — a next generation American Psycho.” This sounds plebeian and uninspired. But it’s FX and they’ve not disappointed yet. They take pride in producing quality content. From Louie to the Shield FX knows what they’re doing.
Here’s hoping that they keep the Mila Kunis American Psycho 2: All American Girl in continuity.
