Thank you, Deadline.

Nellie Andreeva interviewed Lionsgate Television chairman Kevin Beggs, and with the space, he disclosed that 2000 film American Psycho is getting a television remake.

"We’ve just wrapped up Dear White People which was a really good experience, Blindspotting is coming up, American Psycho is in development," Beggs said. "We’re always exploring what we can do in television with something like the Saw franchise, so that’s a conversation."

Andreeva added context related to the vague mention of Saw: "Beggs would not elaborate further, but I hear that Lionsgate TV is in early talks on a TV series adaptation of the book of Saw, from Mark Burg and Oren Koules’ Twisted Television. The Saw film franchise, one of the longest-running horror franchises in history and which has grossed over $1 billion at the box office, has long been rumored as ripe for a TV expansion."

American Psycho originally starred Christian Bale as leading man Patrick Bateman, a New York City banker who struggles to hide his sociopathic alter ego. The Mary Harron-directed thriller's cast also boasted Justin Theroux, Jared Leto, Reese Witherspoon, and more.
