Serial killers and the small screen seem to be an irresistible combination of late, so the news that FX is developing a sequel series to "American Psycho" isn't as utterly insane as, say, trying to get a reservation at Dorsia. Patrick Bateman, the psychotic investment banker created by Bret Easton Ellis, was introduced in Ellis' 1991 novel, has since turned up in several other of the writer's books, and was played by Christian Bale in Mary Harron's 2000 film. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the TV project will catch up with Bateman in his mid-50s, where he's taken on a protege who becomes his equal. The original novel was set in the '80s, so one can only hope this new contemporary compulsive killer with also be a terrible Millennial stereotype who works in a tech start-up and murders people when they have more Twitter followers than he does.
