American Pyscho: The Musical?? For realz?
It's happening, folks!!
Well, Sweeney Todd worked!!
The 1991 Brett Easton Ellis satire, centering around a Wall Street banker living a double life as a psychopathic serial killer, was adapted by Mary Harmon in 2000 into a film and starred Christian Bale, and is now being adapted into a Broadway musical with tunes that will have an '80s aesthetic, the decade in which the story takes place.
Duncan Sheik, who previously composed the awesome Spring Awakening, will be writing the music and lyrics, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a writer on HBO's Big Love, is writing the script.
We're cautiously optimistic - talented people are definitely behind the development, and we LOVES us some '80s music, so we'll have to wait and see!
They should get Christian Bale and Reese Witherspoon to reprise their roles from the movie! We saw Newsies and Walk the Line, those bitches can sing!!
Even Jared Leto can come back so he sing while his character gets axed to death!!
What do U think??
