American Psycho TV Series Planned
Man On Fire will also get the telly treatment

Even though American Psycho got an unexpected, largely unwanted direct-to-DVD sequel with 2002’s American Psycho II: All American Girl, someone at US network FX has decided to push ahead with a follow-up series, setting Stefan Jaworski to write and produce the new show.

Don’t expect Mila Kunis’ sequel character to pop up, however: the new series hopes to get us back to Patrick Bateman, with some brave actor attempting to fill Christian Bale’s stylish suit as we bring Bateman forward to the present day and watch as he trains up a protégé to take on his murderous ways.

Though it seems odd for a TV network to attempt something as potentially bloody as American Psycho, American Horror Story, Hannibal and more have proved you can transfer horror to the small screen without losing the impact.

Also getting the TV series treatment is Tony Scott’s 2004 Denzel Washington action thriller Man On Fire. Writers David DiGillo and Todd Komarnicki are attached to develop the show, which will see John Creasy (as played by Washington in the film), reconnecting with an 18-year-old Pita (originally a nine-year-old Dakota Fanning) to take down the cartel that ruined their lives in the first place. So even though the film ends with the assumption Creasy dies, it appears he’ll be back for vengeance. Just not as Denzel Washington. So does this seem like a good idea to you? And will you be watching either of these? Share your thoughts below.

RE: Possibly the biggest shark jump of all time
So the ambiguous ending of the book and film that left you asking, "is any of this actually true?" is just discarded so they can try and find a follow up to Dexter... not good. More
