Why Does Clay from ‘Less Than Zero’ Want To Remake Our Movie?

June 25, 2010 § Leave a comment

Bret Easton Ellis has a new novel out — it was published on June 15.

In the book, which as another Elvis Costello inspired title, “Imperial Bedrooms”, Ellis revisits the characters he created in “Less Than Zero”, his famous debut novel from 1985.

The protagonist in both books is Clay (played by Andrew McCarthy in the film version, if you recall), and in “Imperial Bedrooms” Clay has grown up to be a successful writer. He’s in Hollywood to help cast a film called “The Listeners.”

But, hey, we already made “The Listeners” back in 2005! Somebody should have told that to Bret before he wrote his book. Our version stars Kristan Raymond Curtis, Tim Robinson and Bernie Tato. We have no idea who Clay intends to cast, but we hear he’s looking at Selma Gomez and Justin Bieber.

Oy.

See our own little “The Listeners” here on the site.
