DiCaprio Gets Cold Feet Over American Psycho

American Psycho production looks shaky

Latest news is that the pre-pubescent one is distancing himself from reports that he will star in the project. There has been strong criticism in movie industry circles over the ditching of original star Christian Bale and director Mary Harron, and the transformation of the movie from a $6 million indie picture into a $40 million behemoth - with Di Caprio reportedly receiving a $21 million fee. Now, despite statements released during Cannes to the effect that the deal was signed - including one from Di Caprio's manager saying Leo was "extremely excited about this script" and planned to make the film "his priority" - they now say there have been "no negotiations between DiCaprio's representatives and Lions Gate Films."
