Bret Easton Ellis Wants Scott Disick To Play Patrick Bateman in ‘American Psycho’ Remake

December 16th, 2011 // 30 Comments

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.

    They need to quit with the American Psycho even the first one wasn’t as great as people make it out to be.

  2. I hope this whole idea is just a joke. Why remake a movie that was made just 11 years ago? It’s not like it wasn’t perfect the first time, because I personally thought it was. FUCKEDOUT is right. Hollywood needs more original ideas instead of this obsession with remaking every movie ever made.

  3. Sean Connery

    He looksh perfect for American Homo.

    This greasy, little cocksucker needs to go…. stat. I’d rather fuck Bruce Jenner than this tool, and that is revolting. I think I just made myself vomit.

    This is perfect. The first movie was a huge disappointment and I think it is hard for anyone who is a fan of the book to not agree that Scott Disick doesn’t have to be an actor for this role because he IS Patrick Bateman. I’ve been saying it for years and I’m glad Bret Easton Ellis himself has now commented on it. He is, unfortunately, only kidding about the movie though. It isn’t going to happen.

    No need to insert joke. Title does it all.

  7. It stops being funny when Patrick Bateman tweets you back that he knows just who u r.

  8. Carolyn

    Just so creepy looking.

    If they kill him off for real in the movie I will watch it.

    The other dude, Miles Fisher, did a music video copying American Psycho.

    I’m surprised exec isn’t wanting to make it a sequel and call it American Psychos kinda like how Alien spawned Aliens.

  12. Bret Easton Ellis may want Scott Disick to play Patrick Bateman, but I’m willing to bet that Scott Disick’s acting ability ends at playing Scott Disick.

    This is my all-time favorite novel, so if some bobblehead gigolo doesn’t want to accept the roll, that’s fine with me. I am hoping Ellis doesn’t want the movie made either and set up an impossible condition. When pigs fly, or when pseudo-Kardashians work… Same thing.

  14. forrest gump

    seen the size of his NOSE HOLES?
    well, take a close look, hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

    Come on, dude is totally a serial killer. Method acting at its finest.

  17. fooey

  18. Rick

    I have no idea who this guy is. Let’s keep it that way.

  19. I Have The Physique Of A God

    Lol, strong sarcasm by Ellis.

  20. Steelerchick

    Don’tcha just want to smack the smug off his face??
