"The dark and talented minds behind such films as Last Days and American
Psycho will be bringing us one twisted tome!
Director Gus Van Sant and author Bret Easton Ellis will team up to pen a
feature film based on The Golden Suicides, a Vanity Fair article written by
Nancy Jo Sales detailing the double suicides of artists Theresa Duncan and
The romantically involved couple gained notoriety in the New York and
Venice, CA art scenes. Duncan was one of the first videogame designers for
girls and Blake became known for his "digital paintings," kaleidoscopic
images shown on plasma screens.
Their paranoid downward spiral began as they increasingly believed that
government and religious organizations were conspiring against them. In
2007, Duncan killed herself and Blake discovered her on their bedroom floor.
One week later, he walked in the Atlantic Ocean to end his own life."
I read the VF article and it haunted me for weeks. The story of these two is
completely riveting and sure that the above two talented geniuses will weave
an amazing tale. Seemingly two talented, beautiful people who had it all.
Very tragic NY tale but will make an amazing film. Only a matter of time
before we see one on Dash Snow.
Thinking that Sienna Miller would make an amazing Theresa and maybe Joaquin
Phoenix for Jeremy?
