Apologise for the hacket job below, but a hacket job really is on theme.
Fresh from news that Ben Affleck is to take over a role he made truly iconic, Christian Bale’s celluloid rendering of ‘American Psycho’ is to get a stage revamp by none other than frickin’ Doctor Who. Poor Affleck, as this casting twist has been a hit with fans who have flocked for tickets to the stage show of Bret Easton Ellis’s most controversial novel.
Hopefully, it will get an extended run as most of the initial December/January dates at London’s Almeida Theatre are already sold out. Which is news enough to get one’s nail gun from out the cupboard, or at least to axe some poor sop to death during a Huey Lewis & The News number. I wonder what the music will bring to the production, but Matt doing Ellis already has me more than intrigued.
