American Psycho: Lionsgate is doing a remake.Watch the trailer and tell me why?!?!?!?!?!

I just saw over on imdb's facebook page that Lionsgate has hired a writer to do a low budget remake of American Psycho. The film, based on Brett Easton Ellis' book, starred Christian Bale and only came out in the year 2000. What do you think? Too soon? Judging from their FB page responses, most people are against the idea. What's your take? Good idea? Don't even think about it! Let me know!  Scroll down to see the trailer from the original.

Here's what imdb says
Noble Jones, who cut his teeth directing commercials, videos for Taylor Swift and Mary J. Blige, and handling second unit for David Fincher on The Social Network, hopes to make his feature directing debut on an updated low budget remake of  American Psycho. Jones, who was Grammy nominated for his documentary 10 Days Out: Blues From the Backroads, is a Fincher protege who pitched the project months ago to Lionsgate, which holds the remake rights. Jones turned in a script about a month ago, but the project has suddenly become buzzed about because it hit the tracking reports that have become the cornerstone of trade reporting. His take was to tap the Bret Easton Ellis novel and turn it into a down and dirty new version that imagines how yuppie serial killer Patrick Bateman would fare in New York today, factoring in how the world has changed since the 2000 film that starred Christian Bale. »
