The series will feature Bateman in his 50s, and he remains as dangerous as ever in a contemporary setting, reports Deadline. The show's creators plan to add intrigue to injury with the introduction of a protégé for Bateman who will conduct a sadistic social experiment.

The series is currently in development and will be written by Stefan Jaworski. No word yet on who will be cast as the dangerously charismatic Bateman (originally played by Christian Bale) or his new protégé.
