Bret Easton Ellis Wants Miles Fisher Or Scott Disick To Be Patrick Bateman In The 'American Psycho' Remake

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist December 9, 2011 at 3:14PM

Well, it looks like we're gonna have to endure a microbudget remake of "American Psycho." While the logical train of thought is that the first movie wasn't exactly a box office and that the material is ripe for another attempt to grab more cash from the multiplex, with Lionsgate shuffling this one off to their cheapie divison and tasking the unknown and ironically named Noble Jones to direct the thing. Well, Bret Easton Ellis got wind of the remake last night, and he hit Twitter quickly to make his thoughts known, especially on who should take on the part of Patrick Bateman.

Well, it looks like we're gonna have to endure a microbudget remake of "American Psycho." While the logical train of thought is that the first movie wasn't exactly a box office and that the material is ripe for another attempt to grab more cash from the multiplex, with Lionsgate shuffling this one off to their cheapie divison and tasking the unknown and ironically named Noble Jones to direct the thing. Well, Bret Easton Ellis got wind of the remake last night, and he hit Twitter quickly to make his thoughts known, especially on who should take on the part of Patrick Bateman.

The quote worthy author declared,  "I have warned Lionsgate that I will not approve a new version of 'American Psycho' unless it stars SCOTT DISICK or MILES FISHER." Fisher is probably best known for being a dead ringer for a young Tom Cruise, who he impersonated in the only watchable part of "Superhero Movie." He's also done some viral video stuff, but his stock is rising with roles in "Final Destination 5" and "J. Edgar" this year. And as one helpful reader just reminded us, he did that "American Psycho" themed video for "This Must Be The Place" (watch it below). As for Disick, he's a professional reality TV douchebag who's currently courting Kourtney Kardashian (aka one of the other ones who isn't Kim). He's actually got the perfect personality to play Patrick though and perhaps his inability to be self-aware would help, but alas it won't be.

Ellis tweeted, "I am waiting for Scott Disick to ask: 'Who in the hell is is Bret Easton Ellis?'" to which Disick replied, "Not going to happen, I know just who u r!" Damn! And there goes our hopes of Kourney Kardashian meeting the unfortuante end of a nailgun.

Anyway, all this is just Twittertalk and the reality is that with a paltry budget, this thing will likely cast a bunch of people you never heard of, and wind up in a DVD bin with the title "American Psycho: The Next Chapter" or some bullshit. Ellis only heard about the remake himself last night so his input will probably be zilch. It probably won't even be Patrick Bateman but his cousin or long lost twin brother or something. Whatever.
