LONDON (AP) — Fresh from roaming the universe in "Doctor Who," Matt Smith is to play a style-obsessed killer roaming New York in the stage musical "American Psycho."
The musical is based on Bret Easton Ellis's 1991 novel about a homicidal yuppie obsessed with high-end clothes and beauty products. It was later made into a movie starring Christian Bale.
Producers announced Monday that Smith, who leaves BBC sci-fi series "Doctor Who" later this year, will play Patrick Bateman, "one of the most iconic antiheroes of the 20th century."
Rupert Goold will direct the show, opening at London's Almeida Theatre on Dec. 12.
It is written by Tony Award-winning songwriter Duncan Sheik ("Spring Awakening") and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who worked on TV series "Glee" and the Broadway production of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark."
