Brett Easton Ellis‘ Less Than Zero is coming to the small screen. Hulu is currently developing a Less Than Zero TV series that will adapt Ellis’ 1985 novel (which was previously made into a 1987 film) about a group of detached college students.

Bret Easton Ellis has a long history with Hollywood. Over twenty years ago he was less than impressed with the film version of his novel Less Than Zero, though thirteen years later Mary Harron would adapt his American Psycho into a film that quickly attained cult classic status and The Rules of Attraction generally stayed true to his intentions. Last year’s The Informers swung the pendulum back towards crap, but there is reason to hope for some of his upcoming projects.

We know what Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader are doing, and a quick trip to the IMDB indicates that Andrew McCarthy is still working, and Jami Gertz had a picture out as recently as ’07. Perhaps the idea of rounding them all up for a Less than Zero sequel isn’t as crazy as I first assumed…
The idea comes from Brett Easton Ellis who is now finishing up said sequel, in novel form. He tells MTV that such a film “would be a great idea”.
