American Psycho Musical Is Underway


If you thought an Evil Dead musical was odd, American Psycho being turned into a musical should certainly turn some heads. Musicals are definitely not my cup of tea but if this helps get horror as more acceptable form of entertainment I'm all for it.

Today Variety announced that the musical has found its creative team, with Duncan Sheik penning music and lyrics and scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa writing the book. Based on the 1991 Bret Easton Ellis novel that centers on a Wall Street banker who's also a serial killer, "American Psycho" incorporates multiple references to the popular music of the 1980s, the era in which the story is set. Producers have said they expect the original score to share that '80s flavor.
