Bret Easton Ellis-penned ‘The Canyons’ gets a trailer that hints at potential grindhouse nature of film
Novelist Bret Easton Ellis gained the attention of filmgoers in 2000, with the feature film adaptation of his book American Psycho, whose success also brought lead actor Christian Bale into the public eye. Easton Ellis subsequently moved into screenplay writing, first putting pen to paper on further movie adaptations of his novels before deciding to do an original screenplay. Titled The Canyons, the movie is directed by Paul Schrader, known best for penning both Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, and marks the feature film debut of porn star James Deen. Joining Deen onscreen are Lindsay Lohan, Gus Van Sant, and Amanda Brooks. The first trailer for this movie has now been released, and can be seen below.
