And we've got 2 x 2 free tickets for all you Dutch & Belgian readers out there.
Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why you need to see Kim Basinger, Billy Bob Thornton, Rhys Ifans, Mickey Rourke, Winona Ryder, etc. act out "the death of the soul" in the most sleek, slick and aesthetic setting possible.
After the jump: fun facts about Mr. Ellis
1. His mom has a google subscription that sends her links every time a site mentions her son's name. She then sends a 'best of' to Bret, who never really googles himself anymore (or so he claims). Hi Mrs. Ellis! Hope you like the post.
2. Bret Easton Ellis is a huge fan of The Hills. He has all the DVD's and admires the producers' detailed and 'evil genius-like' manipulating of the cast's lives.
Which makes sense. Ellis' books are basically horror stories exploiting the parallels between gothic clichés and contemporary rich kid lifestyles. It's no major leap from 'the house on haunted hill' to 'the hills' or from emotionless zombies to a valium-sucking, eternally aloof 'model/actress/Vogue intern'. I mean, have you read The Informers? All you need to do is put some fangs on Spencer and Brody and Boom! You got yorself a real-life Breat Easton Ellis tale of the tanned and undead roaming LA.
Curious to see whether the movie can top that.
