‘American Psycho’ Author Bret Easton Ellis To Direct First Series Alongside Fullscreen

On April 25th, Fullscreen unveiled its upcoming streaming video on-demand service during a press event held at its New York office. While the company’s new product was the star of the show, a few content creators who plan to release their own work on the platform also spoke as well. One of those creators was Bret Easton Ellis, the postmodernist author best known for writing the book American Psycho. Ellis will direct his first series, titled The Deleted, for distribution on Fullscreen’s new service.

In the 80s and 90s, Easton Ellis made a name for himself thanks to novels like Less Than Zero, Rules of Attraction, and American Psycho, all of which feature explicit content and detached, satirical voices. All three of those books were eventually adapted into films, with the 2000 adaptation of American Psycho enduring as a cult classic.

In recent years, Easton Ellis work has trended toward the film world. In 2013, he wrote the script for The Canyons, which gained attention after Lindsay Lohan was cast in one of its lead roles. His on-screen streak will continue with The Deleted, which will premiere at an undisclosed future date.

Specific plot details about The Deleted are scarce, but Easton Ellis noted that Fullscreen was encouraging him to adopt the sort of dark tone for which he is famous. Therefore, The Deleted has a chance to both shock and entertain the young audiences who are expected to subscribe to Fullscreen’s service.

More details about The Deleted, including its release information, will be revealed at a later date.
