Patrick Bateman Goes to Broadway

In the bloody tradition of Sweeney Todd, the Great White Way is going to be a little redder with the planned stage musical version of American Psycho.

Based on the controversial novel by Bret Easton Ellis (which also inspired the 2000 movie starring Christian Bale), the new tuner will feature original songs plus some classic 80's hits. Fans of the movie will recall that Bale's character, Patrick Bateman (investment banker by day, serial killer by night) would slaughter his victims to the tune of such chipper ditties as Huey Lewis and the News' "Hip to Be Square" and Phil Collins' "Sussudio".

No dramatists or schedule have been confirmed for the production at this time.
