'American Psycho' Will Become Broadway Musical If the problematic 'Spider-Man' musical ever sorts itself out, the next Hollywood-to-Broadway production is ready for headlines: 'American Psycho,' the gruesome glimpse into a disturbed mind, first a novel by LA writer Bret Easton Ellis and later adapted into a Christian Bale Hollywood film, will hit the Great White Way.

"There are murders, and they are on stage in full view of the audience," playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Page Six. "An ax and a chef's knife will be used. I think there's going to be a lot of blood."

Bale's unforgettable depiction of deranged Wall Street banker Patrick Bateman spirals into a series of cringe-worthy killings in the 2000 film. "Obviously, it's not for the people who want to see 'Elf,'" Aguirre-Sacasa said, referring to the Will Ferrell film's new Broadway adaptation.
