Back in December of 2011 it was announced that Noble Jones, a music video and commercial director, would be writing and directing a modern remake of "American Psycho," based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel that was adapted once before by director Mary Harron (with a wonderful Christian Bale in the iconic lead role of '80s psychopath Patrick Bateman). Well, those plans have seemingly faltered (despite an endorsement by Ellis himself) but Bateman will be back, only this time on television. FX is developing an "American Psycho" sequel series for prime time. Oh don't worry, it gets even weirder.

While Mary Harron's Christian Bale-starring adaptation of "American Psycho" has become a cult favorite, author Bret Easton Ellis has never been a fan of her movie. While not exceedingly critical, he's long said his novel is unfilmable, and currently doing the rounds for "The Canyons," he again underscores how the core of 'Psycho' was compromised when it was brought to the big screen.

American Psycho with Huey Lewis and Weird Al
While this might have been inevitable, it doesn't make it any less hilarious – Huey Lewis and "Weird Al" Yankovic have teamed up for a pretty spectacular Funny or Die clip riffing on the infamous scene from "American Psycho" where Christian Bale's titular nut job Patrick Bateman discusses the artistic merits of Huey Lewis and the News, before driving an axe blade into Jared Leto's skull. In the video, Lewis fills in for Bale and Yankovic subs for Leto, with the pair chatting about the "American Psycho" movie. The results, predictably, are maniacally funny.

If there is any small bit of positivity one can take from the school shooting tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut earlier this month, it's that it will hopefully force a sober and frank discussion about the profileration of assault weapons and the ease of access to guns and ammunition in this country. And indeed, many quarters are calling for stricter laws or even bans to be drawn up around the type of weapons that were used by the killer in Newtown. Staying mostly silent until now has been the NRA themselves, but today they finally held a press conference (but didn't take any questions) and seemed to dust off a speech that was two decades old.

Of all the remakes to be announced in the last little while, Lionsgate's do-over of "American Psycho" has generated the most (outraged) chatter. Already deemed a contemporary classic starring a wickedly deranged Christian Bale and directed with finesse by Mary Harron, the film took the source novel's satircal edge to its logical ends. Anyway, the story is being updated to contemporary New York by commercials and music video director Noble Jones (who also helmed the Grammy nominated "10 Days Out: Blues From The Backroad"), and of all people, it's the author Bret Easton Ellis who has become a champion of sorts for the movie.

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.
