Hey, Paul: An American Psycho Musical Is On The Way!

If you thought a Spider-Man musical was weird, how about one that centers on fictional serial killer Patrick Bateman?

The New York Post has an interview with comic book author and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and composer Duncan Sheik, both of whom are collaborating on the developing American Psycho: The Musical, based on the acclaimed Bret Easton Ellis novel that was turned into a Christian Bale-starring film in 2000. The pair reportedly signed on for the American Psycho musical last February and have already completed work on the first act. A full draft is expected in early 2011.

"There are murders, and they are on stage in full view of the audience," Aguirre-Sacasa said of the musical's gore factor. "An ax and a chef's knife will be used. I think there's going to be a lot of blood."

Here's hoping they can get Bale to reprise his role as Bateman. After all, it's not like the guy can't sing...
