** 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.

* GeniusBonus:
** Patrick gives detailed descriptions of each character's clothes, including brand names and prices. Readers who are extremely knowledgeable about 80's fashion will notice that the outfits are clownishly mismatched.
** There's a similar gag involving the food at the various restaurants, which go from outrageous but plausible (red snapper pizza) to outright inedible (mud soup and charcoal arugula).
