Rules of Attraction series on the way


Yeah so this is now officially a trend. After Hannibal, Bates Motel and Fargo all hitting the small screen and with Scream, Constantine and She's Gotta Have It all on the way, we now have yet another movie that's being adapted for TV.

Bret Easton Ellis' shocking college-set novel and movie The Rules of Attraction will become a new show on Bravo in the US.

The official announcement lists original director Roger Avary as the writer of the project with Zero Dark Thirty's Greg Shapiro as producer.

The series description is as follows:

Inspired by the book and film of the same name, the high concept series takes the students and faculty at the fictional Camden College and unravels a murder mystery by telling the same story through 12 different points of view. Children of the 1%-er’s live as unhinged and wild adults in a Bret Easton Ellis world with seemingly no rules to hold these privileged few down.

You can expect casting news rather soon. The 2002 film starred James Van Der Beek, Shannon Sossamon, Kate Bosworth, Ian Somerhalder and Jessica Biel.
