As a musical?

Variety reported this week that a stage musical version of American Psycho is in the works and is looking to head to Broadway. Yes, you read that right, American Psycho: The Musical.

If you haven’t seen the film, it’s actually worth a rent. It’s a very dark comedy set in the 1980s. It stars Christian Bale (yum!) as a 1980s yuppie Wall Street guy who also likes to, you know, kill people sometimes. Oh and Bale’s character really likes the music of Phil Collins.

I just wonder if there’s actually a huge Broadway audience for this thing. The film gets a bit bloody as I recall and it just seemed to have limited market appeal but maybe that’s just me. It’s no weirder than other musicals coming to Broadway I suppose.
