American Psycho: A Rumor Coming True

Rumors of American Psycho: The Musical have been running around the internet for several years but it sounds like it's actually going to happen. Duncan Sheik has written 14 new songs for the show, which might sound odd but he actually wrote songs for the Tony-award-winning musical Spring Awakening several years ago. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is halfway through the script. This guy has a crazy resume: he's a respected playwright who is also a pretty popular Marvel comics writer. Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is currently leveraging that background to help fix their script since they fired director Julie Taymor.

On the one hand, unless there's a naked, chainsaw wielding Christian Bale in it, I'm not sure I'm interested.

(I honestly love that he kept the white sneakers on in that scene.)

On the other hand, this might be terribly funny, and not entirely on purpose.

To be fair, there is a lot of talk about music in the film and Patrick Bateman does enjoy Les Miserables so maybe the notion isn't as insane as it sounds? Too bad Huey Lewis isn't scoring the show.

I know I'll be checking theatre listings in 2012. Anyone else?
