An “American Psycho” sequel is set to hit the big screen with a female killer at the center. None other than “That 70’s Show” star Mila Kunis. You heard it right, the sweet chick from “That 70’s Show” and films like “Get Over It” will get her kicks by hunting humans. The sequel is set to go before cameras in Mid-May with director Morgan Freeman (not the actor, the director behind “Hurricane Streets”). The sequel to “Psycho” — the big-screen adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ 1991 novel following yuppie serial killer Patrick Bateman — will star Kunis as a college freshman who survived an attack by Bateman. After developing a dark obsession to join a professor as his teaching assistant, the crafty coed sets out to destroy anyone who gets in her way.
” ‘American Psycho II’ is a darkly satirical script in the spirit of the original ‘American Psycho,’ ” Lions Gate Prods. president Michael Paseornek said. “Morgan J. Freeman is a talented director who we are convinced will make a film that will appeal to audiences from the late teens on up. And Mila Kunis is about to really break out. She has great timing for a dark comedy like this.”
Paseornek added that Lions Gate sees “Psycho” as a future franchise for the company. “We believe if we do these films well, that ‘American Psycho’ can be a franchise,” he said. “That will be up to us by delivering good movies.”
