Gus Van Sant and Bret Easton Ellis will be writing a screenplay together based on the 2008 Vanity Fair story “The Golden Suicides.” The story is about the suicides of couple Jeremy Blake and Theresa Duncan, both artists, in 2007. Variety says “the couple descended into a paranoid spiral when the artists developed a consuming belief that government and religious organizations were conspiring against them.”

Between Van Sant’s often depressing moods and Ellis’ coked-out crazy moods (in his books like American Psycho and Glamorama), this movie is sure to take you inside the minds of the fallen golden couple.

I love Ellis and Van Sant. But they both have a way of messing with your head. Be sure to be on your meds when this movie comes out.
