American Psycho author has two dream Patrick Bateman picks

Dec. 16, 2011by:

AMERICAN PSYCHO is being remade, as I unfortunately reported last week, but the good news is that instead of a full-fledged reboot, it appears that the thing might actually be headed for the bargain bin with a tiny budget and not much studio support. Apparently the worldwide reaction to the news is not what they were hoping to hear.

Author of the original book Bret Easton Ellis got wind of the reboot, and had one specific demand for the studio:

"I have warned Lionsgate that I will not approve a new version of 'American Psycho' unless it stars SCOTT DISICK or MILES FISHER."

Miles Fisher makes sense, as he's a very talented young actor who has the memorable "This Must Be the Place" video where he acts as Bateman. Scott Disick on the other hand? He may look the part, but he's reality TV douchebag you'd only know if you watched Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Saying he's the most dislikable person on the show is really saying something in that cast.

Anyway, though this might be half a joke, let's hope this idea gets scrapped altogether.

Why do you all care?

Why do ya'll care if they reboot it? It's not like its going to change the original. If you don't like it, DON'T GO SEE THE MOVIE!

They should get Donald Trump Jr. for the role. He looks a lot like him and is already a total douche.

At least they're kinda listening to the public

Just don't reboot this movie at all, period.
If the "world wide" reaction wasn't what they expected...
maybe hire someone creative and make something new and fresh.

Ellis was joking

Seriously. Miles Fisher's video is a direct homage to the original film, and he looks a LOT like Christian Bale, so why would a studio choose him for a reboot? And the other guy is an unlikeable douchebag - clearly Ellis was taking the mickey (as he so often does on his Twitter). He doesn't support the remake at all.

Scott Disick uses an after shave with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

Almost perfect casting. The guy is like a real life Bateman. ....I still wouldn't watch it though.

from the first time i found out who Disick was...i instantly thought of his likeness to Bateman...i am glad Easton-Ellis noticed, too...i wonder if Disick knows he channels Bateman?

Scott Disick IS Patrick Bateman... except real... which makes him instantly unlikable, not charming, and just annoying.

I would not be surprised if Scott Disick was actually killing hookers in his free time
