American Psycho

After years of rumours, it seems like Christian Bale’s classic horror flick, American Psycho, will be finally made into a musical.  We know what you’re thinking… but think more Sweeney Todd, less Grease The Musical.

The American Psycho musical has been in the works since 2008, when producers bought the rights to adapt the 1991 novel, which was made into the 2000 film starring Christian Bale.  Playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa explains what to expect of the play, “There are murders, and they are on stage in full view of the audience… I think there’s going to be a lot of blood”.  Um, great; we can’t wait.

From a musical about psychos to a musical that will make you laugh…

Robert Downey Jr. (who got his start in theatre) is set to star in and produce an upcoming musical comedy.  The still-un-named flick will be about two Broadway songwriters who find themselves bankrupt when their big musical flops.  They take jobs as counselors at a theatre camp and hatch a plan for a comeback.  We can see how this could end up being pretty funny—after all, RDJ was pretty funny in Due Date.
