    'American Psycho' The Musical

    Stage Musical Adaptation of
    "American Psycho"
    Is Aiming for Broadway

    Plans are afoot for a stage musical adaptation of "American Psycho," the Bret Easton Ellis novel that was adapted into a 2000 film starring "Dark Knight" actor Christian Bale.

    The Johnson-Roessler Company, The Collective and XYZ Films have partnered to "acquire, develop and produce the live stage version," according to a press statement. No dramatists have been confirmed for the production, which will feature a mix of original music and hit tunes from the eighties.
    Producers will include Johnson-Roessler Company's David Johnson, Craig Roessler and Jesse Singer; The Collective's Aaron Ray; and XYZ Films' Nate Bolotin. Novelist Ellis and Edward R. Pressman will serve as consulting producers.

    In a statement co-producer Johnson said, "'American Psycho' continues to be a cultural phenomenon. Ellis' book contains so many memorable lines and musical references that a live musical production is the perfect fit. The character of Patrick Bateman has become an icon for fans of Ellis' book and the film adaptation, and now we can bring this dark but comical world of greed to the stage in an entertaining and thought-provoking way."
    Writer Ellis added, "This is the perfect storm of creative people to turn 'American Psycho' into an entertaining musical play. 'American Psycho''s essence is the high-flying 80s, the decadence and the music together, they are the equivalent of a spectacular train wreck you have to watch."
