Patrick Bateman is poised to sink an axe into the small screen! Speaking with Deadline, Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate Television’s chairman, revealed that “American Psycho is in development.” And a Saw series could be coming our way in future as well!
“We’re always exploring what we can do in television with something like the Saw franchise, so that’s a conversation,” Beggs said.
“Beggs would not elaborate further,” notes Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, “but I hear that Lionsgate TV is in early talks on a TV series adaptation of the book of Saw, from Mark Burg and Oren Koules’ Twisted Television. The Saw film franchise, one of the longest-running horror franchises in history and which has grossed over $1 billion at the box office, has long been rumoured as ripe for a TV expansion.”
We’re certainly intrigued! We’ll keep you posted about both projects as we learn more.
