christian bale american psycho sequel fx 'American Psycho' sequel in development at FXRiding the recent wave of movie serial killers making the move to TV (“Hannibal,” “Bates Motel”), Patrick Bateman is poised the join the ranks at FX.

The cable net and Lionsgate TV have partnered to work on a sequel TV series to “American Psycho,” the 2000 feature film, based on Bret Easton Ellis‘ 1991 novel of the same name. The drama will center on the iconic killer (played by Christian Bale in the film), now in his mid-50s but just as lethal as ever. Bateman takes on a protege in a sadistic social experiment, one who eventually becomes his equal — the next generation American Psycho.

Stefan Jaworski will write the project, as well as executive produce alongside Allison Shearmur and Ed Pressman. No actors are attached to the project as of yet.
