Paul Schrader wrote Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. Now he has collaborated on a shark movie with Bret Easton Ellis. The main character of this one sounds like a working-class Patrick Bateman crossed with Captain Ahab: a young man who decides to take revenge on the super-rich by propelling them to a sharky doom.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The man, who works at a posh beach club, angles his way on to a yacht filled with the obnoxious elite, commandeering it into waters filled with the finned man-eaters.”
We also like how The Hollywood Reporter calls Mr. Schrader and Mr. Ellis “two of the greatest literary minds of their generations,” who will “elevate the genre.”
