Patrick Bateman goes crazy – Broadway style!

One of the launch pads for  Christian Bale’s career, American Psycho, is set to be made into a Broadway musical.

The Bret Easton Ellis novel-turned -ilm focuses on Wall Street yuppie Patrick Bateman, an obsessive materialist by day, and cold blooded killer by night.

The controversial book was made into a film in 2000, and has since gained a massive cult following.

Now the Johnson-Roessler Company, The Collective and XYZ Films have joined forces to develop and produce the live stage version of the novel, the companies said.

Details of director, actors, or a release date, have not been confirmed for the Broadway show.
