Duncan Sheik Composing Music for American Psycho Musical
In 2008, we told you about the musical adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho, because the only thing scarier than a smart, handsome serial killer with a penchant for powder and Phil Collins is a smart, handsome serial killer with a penchant for powder and Phil Collins who also sings and dances.
Although the project still has no production timeline, Duncan Sheik has been drafted to pen the music and lyrics, which will apparently reflect a strong ‘80s theme. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, scribe of HBO’s Big Love, will write the book, and Michael Mayer, who has worked on Spring Awakening and the American Idiot musical, is slated to direct.
