Sorry, no one. Looks like the sequel to The Canyons will have to wait. American Psycho scribe Bret Easton Ellis will be busy directing his first feature, The Deleted, a thriller in which the disappearance of three Los Angelenos “triggers a collective paranoia among a group of twenty-somethings, all of whom escaped from a cult ‎several years back.” The film will premiere on Fullscreen, a VOD media site set to launch this week that almost certainly isn't a conduit for an electronic murder ghost, though if it is, well, you got your screenwriter and director right here.
