Jordan Informs

I haven't seen LESS THAN ZERO and I'm not a huge fan of THE RULES OF ATTRACTION. But I love AMERICAN PSYCHO, so I'm pretty psyched about the idea of Bret Easton Ellis' THE INFORMERS getting the movie greenlight. I also like the idea that Gregor Jordan (NED KELLY) has been tapped to direct the flick, since I think he'll do well with Ellis' traditionally amoral characters. The book is a series of interconnected vignettes set in Los Angeles, 1983, featuring a rogue's gallery of movie executives, rock stars and even a vampire. Here's what the synopsis on the back of the book has to say:

Dirk sees his best friend killed in a desert car wreck, then rifles through his pockets for a last joint before the ambulance comes. Cheryl, a wannabe newscaster, chides her future stepdaughter, "You're tan but you don't look happy." Jamie is a clubland carnivore with a taste for human blood. As rendered by Ellis, their interactions compose a chilling, fascinating, and outrageous descent into the abyss beneath L.A.'s gorgeous surfaces.

THE INFORMERS will mark the first time that Ellis has adapted one of his own stories for the screen.
