Variety has reported that Patrick Bateman, the titular psycho who burst onto the screen in the 2000 adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel, has finally found a creative team for the musical adaptation courtesy of the Johnson-Roessler Co., Aaron Ray of the Collective, and Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films.
Set to pen the music and lyrics is for some reason Duncan Sheik, known primarily for the 90s pop tune "Barely Breathing," while Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who has penned episodes of the HBO Mormon love fest Big Love, will write the book.
And who should play Patrick Bateman? My vote goes for....Christian Bale. I mean, did you SEE him in Newsies?
Many thanks to the kind folks at Shock Till you Drop for the heads up.
