First of all, you did know that a remake of American Psycho is in the works, right? And I know, the original was made in 2000, why is a remake happening, so on and so forth. But we can’t waste time discussing that now. Because now, there’s a somewhat solid chance that Scott Disick will play the lead role of Patrick Bateman. And that’s just too much.

Here’s what Bret Easton Ellis, author of the American Psycho novel, had to say via Twitter:

Scott retweeted both of those statements, along with his approval of Bret’s wishes. And just in case you think Mr. Bret Easton Ellis was being silly, let me just inform you that last night he also Tweeted about Kourtney and Kim Take New York, which I think is extremely telling.

Ok, now don’t hate me, but I can actually see it. Scott Disick’s entire being just screams Patrick Bateman, doesn’t it? I mean, there’s the look, of course, but somehow I could see Scott being convincing as a serial killer. On top of that, he’s also dropped some references in the past that showed his awareness of the similarities. I’m not saying that he should get the role or that he would have the ability to do it, I’m just saying that I can see where all this is coming from.

What do you guys think? Would you watch Scott Disick as Patrick Bateman? Are you pumped for the remake? Did you see the original? Let’s talk about it.
