American Psycho To Become Musical

Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening composer Duncan Sheik and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa have announced that they are going to create a new musical based on the notorious 1991 novel American Psycho (which also has a film version starring Christian Bale) about a yuppie Wall Street banker who turns murderous. American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis has given his blessing to the endeavor, but there is not yet any production schedule planned, nor is there word on whether or not the musical will be headed for Broadway.
