Variety is reporting that Senator Entertainment (not exactly a studio) has hired Gregor Jordan to direct an adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ novel, The Informers. The Informers is a tale of sex, drugs, and violence set in 1983 Los Angeles that weaves together stories of rock stars, movie executives, and a vampire among others. Three other Ellis novels (American Psycho, Less Than Zero, and The Rules of Attraction) have already been adapted to the screen. However, The Informers is the first that he has written the adaptation. Gregor Jordan directed 2003’s Ned Kelly that had a great cast of Heath Ledger, Naomi Watts, and Geoffrey Rush. Orlando Bloom was also in the film, but I don’t consider his inclusion in a film’s cast make it great. Shooting will start sometime this summer.
