Charles Manson Movie to be Scripted by American Psycho Writer

27 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

American Psycho screenwriter Guinevere Turner will adapt the 1971 book about Charles Manson, The Family, for a feature film being developed by Roxwell Films. It tells the story of Manson's life leading up to the 1969 murders of at least nine people including Sharon Tate. The writer had this to say in a statement:

“It’s exciting to explore the psychology of the young women who followed Manson. What makes a 19-year-old in 1968 follow a man to the extreme of killing innocent people for him? We all know how it ends — people die and people go to jail — but how did it get to that?”

The movie will be directed by Jonas Akerlund, who has directed concert films for musicians such as Madonna and U2. He's also directed a few movie such as Horsemen with Dennis Quaid. This is what he had to say about his latest project:

3 of the Greatest Book to Movie Adaptations

1 September 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Hodgson on his three greatest book to movie adaptations…

American Psycho

Author, Bret Easton Ellis.

Screenplay, Mary Harron & Guinevere Turner.

Upon its original publication in 1991, American Psycho was marred by controversy, and it’s no surprise considering one of the chapters is called ‘Killing Child at Zoo’, which was sensibly not included in the film. The satire focuses on Patrick Bateman, a cold blooded narcissistic ‘yuppie’ who spends his days listening to Phil Collins in his plush Wall Street office, but spends his nights brutally murdering prostitutes and homeless people. Harron & Turner were set with the tough task of portraying the comedic elements of the book whilst keeping it’s gruesome themes.

And they nailed it. From the opening credits of blood-like condiments dripping across the screen, to the famously ambiguous ending, it is easy to tell that they truly understood what Ellis was trying to say. And through »
