Lionsgate, which is already mining its intellectual property to launch TV shows based on acclaimed movies like John Wick and Blindspotting, is developing shows based on American Psycho and Saw. "We’re always exploring what we can do in television with something like the Saw franchise, so that’s a conversation," says Lionsgate Television chairman Kevin Beggs in an interview with Deadline. He wouldn't go into detail about American Psycho, based on Brett Easton Ellis' 1991 novel which was turned into a 2000 film starring Christian Bale. He would only say that it's in development. Deadline's Nellie Andreeva adds: "Beggs would not elaborate further, but I hear that Lionsgate TV is in early talks on a TV series adaptation of the book of Saw, from Mark Burg and Oren Koules’ Twisted Television. The Saw film franchise, one of the longest-running horror franchises in history and which has grossed over $1 billion at the box office, has long been rumored as ripe for a TV expansion."
