Lionsgate has hired Noble Jones to write and direct a remake of American Psycho, which will mark his feature directorial debut.
The original American Psycho starred Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, an affluent investment banker in the 1980s, who moonlights as a serial killer. Noble Jones pitched a new take to the studio, which explores how Patrick Bateman adapts to New York City in the 21st Century. The original American Psycho is adapted from Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same name.
The remake has not been given the green light by Lionsgate yet, and is still in the early stages of development.
