When word broke this week that American Psycho was inexplicably getting a modern-day remake already, what most people, including myself, didn’t know is that the book’s author Bret Easton Ellis is not only on board with the remake but is legitimately asking for Scott Disick of Kardashian fame to play Patrick Bateman. No, really. Via indieWIRE by way of FilmDrunk:
The quote worthy author declared, “I have warned Lionsgate that I will not approve a new version of ‘American Psycho’ unless it stars SCOTT DISICK or MILES FISHER.” Fisher is probably best known for being a dead ringer for a young Tom Cruise, who he impersonated in the only watchable part of “Superhero Movie.” … As for Disick, he’s a professional reality TV douchebag who’s currently courting Kourtney Kardashian (aka one of the other ones who isn’t Kim). He’s actually got the perfect personality to play Patrick though and perhaps his inability to be self-aware would help, but alas it won’t be.
Ellis tweeted, “I am waiting for Scott Disick to ask: ‘Who in the hell is is Bret Easton Ellis?’” to which Disick replied, “Not going to happen, I know just who u r!”
Scott Disick basically just got handed a major film role for doing absolutely nothing worthy of note save for falling out of wealthy vagina which allowed him to knock up a Kardashian (twice) and have the grooming skills of a sociopath, so of course, he’s going to turn it down. It involves work.
