Talk about "The Canyons," Paul Schrader's new film starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen, has been nearly unavoidable, even though you'd be hard pressed to find the movie on a big screen.

Almost as controversial as the sex and violence-filled unrated film itself is its screenwriter, Bret Easton Ellis.

Hey, remember when we told you yesterday that somebody at Lionsgate decided it would be a good idea to remake "American Psycho" with a really tiny budget and an unknown director even though the critically acclaimed original starring Christian Bale was a box office success and arrived in theaters just 11 short years ago? Well, "American Psycho" Bret Easton Ellis must have read that article too, because posted his reaction on Twitter last night and he laid down the law.

"I have warned Lionsgate," Ellis tweeted, "that I will not approve a new version of "American Psycho" unless it stars SCOTT DISICK or MILES FISHER."
