John Niven’s cult novel Kill Your Friends kind of takes American Psycho and transplants it to the UK music industry in the 90s, at the height of Britpop. And the film version looks like it’s going to be just as violent.
Nicholas Hoult channels Christian Bale as charming yet sleazy A&R man Steven Stelfox, whose life in the music biz is one non-stop orgy of sex, drugs and excess. But his search for a hit record gets increasingly desperate search, he ends up taking a murderous turn.
Kill Your Friends is released in UK cinemas on November 6.
