Lionsgate Remaking AMERICAN PSYCHO

Lionsgate is developing a new version of of the Bret Easton-Ellis novel American Psycho. Not sure why they are feeling the need to re-make the movie. The 2000 film that starred Christian Bale was a great film, and remaking it doesn't make sense, unless they are going to take it in a different direction, which doesn't make sense either. 

The studio has hired  Noble Jones to adapt a new version of the film. According to Variety, the project has not been officially greenlit, but they are obviously wanting to do it. This looks like Jones' first writing gig, she previously worked on The Social Network as a second unit director. 

The story follows a wealthy New York investment banking executive who hides his alternate psychopathic ego from his co-workers and friends as he escalates deeper into his illogical, gratuitous fantasies. The guy is an extremely crazy nut job. 

What are your thought's on American Psycho getting the remake treatment?
