FX is developing an American Psycho sequel series, Deadline reports.

The series would follow a modern-day Patrick Bateman, now in his 50s, taking on a protégé as part of a social experiment to create a next generation American Psycho.

Last year, Bret Easton Ellis, who wrote the novel on which the 2000Christian Bale film was based, shared his ideas for an American Psycho sequel on Twitter.

"Patrick would hate Obama and for example, go into great detail about the Honey Badger fraudulence of #Kony2012 and he'd love Kim Kardashian," Ellis wrote. "Patrick's iPad would start speaking to him... Telling him Adele's cover of The Cure drove him to killing, well, just about everybody..." the author continued. Social media also heavily played into Ellis' ideas for a modern American Psycho, suggesting Patrick would complain about Tumblr, find victims on Blendr and post pictures of murdered girls on Facebook.

What do you think the American Psycho series should look like? Who would you cast? Would you watch?
