** After the novel was originally optioned in 1991, Ellis himself was set to write the script for director Stuart Gordon with Creator/JohnnyDepp starring as Patrick Bateman. Gordon wanted to do the film in black and white and stick as close to the book as possible, meaning a guaranteed X-rating. After the project fell through, Creator/DavidCronenberg replaced Gordon, with Creator/Pitt set to star. This project also failed to get off the ground.
