Benecio To Play Author Easton Ellis

Benecio del Toro is tipped to play “American Psycho” and “Rules of Attraction” author Bret Easton Ellis in an adaptation of his novel “Lunar Park”.

“Lunar Park is in some state of pre-production. This is a very funny town. Oddly enough, Benicio Del Toro I think is going to do it” said Easton Ellis to MTV News.

Park’ is a semi-autobiographical tale that details the early fame Ellis received when his literary career took off in the Eighties, then blurs it with such fictional details as terrorist attacks, ghost hauntings, and a marriage to an actress.

“I think he’s interested just because he’s rarely offered Anglo parts. I think that’s one of the reasons it was very exciting [to him]” says Ellis.
