FX Looks to Pick Up Where DEXTER Left Off With AMERICAN PSYCHO Series
According to Deadline, FX has officially put an American Psycho drama series into development that would serve as a sequel to the 2000 film starring Christian Bale. Even more interesting is that the series will find Patrick Bateman grooming a protégé – similar to a recent subplot in Dexter that saw the serial killer training a (now-deceased) Zach Hamilton.
In the new drama series, iconic serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50’s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, takes on a protégé in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal — a next generation American Psycho.
No word on when the pilot episode is slated to premiere or who will be cast yet. Unlike the underwhelming Hannibal or A&E’s Bates Motel, FX might just be the only network (aside from HBO or Showtime) to have the balls to do a series like this right. What do you think?
