Bret Easton Ellis is moonlighting from his steady employment as a Twitter writer to put together a teen drama on The CW with fellow teen drama experts Catherine Hardwick (Twilight director) and Josh Schwartz (creator of Gossip Girl and The O.C.) to paste together Copeland Prep, a drama with a bad title that will feature feature rich kids who are so competitive that they turn into actual monsters.
So it’s Twilight meets Rules of Attraction(ish) meets Cruel Intentions meets Gossip Girl meets The Vampire Diaries. Oh it’s also Buffy a lot.
With all those source materials, one must wonder how Bret Easton Ellis is going to put his own mark on this project.
What’s that? He’s gonna make them sexy and depraved?
Well there you go, then.
