Billy Bob Thornton, Brandon Routh and Kim Basinger are in negotiations to star in ensemble drama “The Informers” for Senator International says The Hollywood Reporter.

Ashley Olsen, Jon Foster, Austin Nichols and Lou Taylor Pucci are also set to star in this adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel that Gregor Jordan (“Two Hands,” “Ned Kelly”) is directing.

Set in 1980’s Los Angeles, the script follows seven stories taking course during a week in the life of a movie executive, his wife, his mistress, a rock star, a vampire and a kidnapper.

Thornton will play the movie exec, and Basinger will portray his wife. Routh has been cast as the vampire, while Olsen is a sexually promiscuous girl. Shooting will commence in October in Los Angeles, Uruguay and Buenos Aires.
