    The headline pretty much says it all.

    "James Deen is my first choice to play Christian or Ryan in LA noir micro budget Paul Schrader movie I'm writing. Nudity and acting a must...," Bret Easton Ellis tweeted Sunday night (via The Playlist).
     
    Ellis penned the brilliant "American Psycho," one the most hilariously, savagely biting critiques of America in the '80s (which was turned into a fantastic film featuring Christian Bale's break-out performance as a sadistic killer yuppie). Schrader is one of cinema's true geniuses, a man who is somehow unknown outside the film-nerd community, and whose command of violence would dovetail nicely with Eliss' best work.
     
    And Deen, well, to hear Wikipedia tell it, is a 25-year-old porn star who specializes in "'female-friendly' pornography" and has cultivated via social media a large fan base of teenage girls. Why these three haven't worked together before is anyone's guess.
     
    Honestly, this sounds like a cry for attention from BEE, but, hey, he's earned a bit of petulance.
