Whatever happened to Patrick Bateman after the events of American Psycho? Well FX is hoping that fans of the original film will want to find out. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that a weekly TV series in the works.
 
“The drama, which hails from Allison Shearmur, writer Stefan Jaworski and Lionsgate Television, is described as a follow-up to the book and subsequent feature film of the same name”. 
 
The series would revolve around Bateman, now in his mid-50s taking on a protege. 

American Psycho is based on “Bret Easton Ellis' controversial 1991 novel revolves around Patrick Bateman, a Manhattan executive with a secret life as a serial killer, and spawned a 2000 feature film adaptation starring Christian Bale. The 1980s-set book and movie depicted Bateman seemingly relishing in his upscale lifestyle and like-minded friends, whom he secretly despised. The feature film was written by Mary Harron and Guinevere Turner, with the former directing. The Lionsgate-produced film grossed $34 million worldwide”.

With Dexter ending and Hannibal going strong into a second season, do we want or need another serial killer on TV? Sound off below Maniacs!
