However, if you believe Purple Revolver, Ellis has hinted that the quick sale of the rights was money motivated and is not a challenge he is setting himself to transfer the text to film, as The Informers was (for which he wrote the screenplay and co-produced).
Imperial Bedrooms is considered a sequel to his first novel and film Less Than Zero which starred Robert Downey Jr.
According to Purple Revolver Ellis was speaking at a GQ party when he said: “In an ideal world, I would love to have the same cast as before as it is the same characters.
“But I don’t think Robert will do this one – he is in a different place now.
“Actually scratch that, in an ideal world the film would not get made, but I would still get the money.”
We are waiting for comment from Ellis and his publishers to reassure us that he cares about how his works are translated into celluloid.
