    Bret Easton Ellis Penning Microbudget Noir For Paul Schrader, Wants Porn Star James Deen To Star

    Could shock-novelist Bret Easton Ellis' next detour lead him down some dark alleyways with the writer of "Taxi Driver"? If Ellis' topsy-turvy Twitter account (via ONTD) is to be believed, he's working on an "L.A. noir micro budget Paul Schrader movie." And he'...
