Earlier this week, Bret Easton Ellis made headlines when he claimed that the script for The Batman was terrible and that Warner Bros. didn’t really care. In an interview with The Ringer (via io9), Ellis mentioned having dinner with a few studio executives who had heard through the rumor mill that several people involved in Ben Affleck’s movie had approached Warner Bros. with a list of changes needed to iron out the script. According to Ellis’ sources, the executives were told that the studio just didn’t care.

Released in 2002 and based on the book of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis, 'The Rules of Attraction' featured an ensemble cast including hot young stars like James van der Beek and Jessica Biel in an interweaving, darkly comedic series of narratives set at a New Hampshire college. Van der Beek's character, Sean Bateman, was the younger brother of Patrick Bateman, the lead character from Ellis' 'American Psycho,' immortalized on screen by Christian Bale just a couple of years prior. While 'The Rules of Attraction' wasn't the hit that 'American Psycho' was with audiences, the film went on to quickly gain cult status. 12 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
Based on everything we've seen, and read, about Paul Schrader's trainwreck-in-the-making 'The Canyons,' it's unfortunate that the first clip from the indie is such a bore. Well, until the last 15 seconds or so, but even that is dark/trying to be dark. For the most part, you'll watch as Lindsay Lohan wanders around a house calling her own cell phone while a man ("ex"-porn star James Deen) sleeps in a nearby bed.
A new teaser for Bret Easton Ellis and Paul Schrader's 'The Canyons' has emerged, boasting a 1930s influence along with more Lindsay Lohan, porn star James Deen, and yes, it's still not looking very good.
We've been looking forward to 'The Canyons,' the new film from writer Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader, starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen -- but we aren't sure why, especially after this latest teaser, which is somehow worse than the last one.
Author and noted eccentric Bret Easton Ellis and Paul Schrader have been working to put the finishing touches on 'The Canyons,' their crowd-funded drama starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen, and now you can (sort of) see what those crazy kids have been up to with the first official teaser trailer.
Bret Easton Ellis is the kind of off-his-rocker writer we admire around here. The writer of 'American Psycho' and the upcoming film 'The Canyons' has some ideas about a 'Fifty Shades of Grey' adaptation.
