Rules of Attraction Team Reunite On “Empire”

“The Rules of Attraction” author Bret Easton Ellis is re-teaming with the star and director of that book’s 2002 film adaptation, James Van Der Beek and Roger Avery respectively, for the dark comedy series “Post Empire” from Kapital Entertainment and Merman Films.

The six-episode project stars the former “Dawson’s Creek” heart throb as a shady American Bernie Madoff-style figure living in the UK who is trying to keep his investors happy while his world starts to collapse.

The project is one of several from Kapital Entertainment and Merman Films which aims to develop American-created content for the UK. Another project of theirs in the works is the multi-camera comedy “A Sort of Family”.
