The Canyons marks the screenwriting debut of Bret Easton Ellis (pictured), the controversial author of American Psycho and Less Than Zero. The film is billed as a "contemporary LA noir... about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their twenties". The official synopsis also promises "deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence".

The Canyons is directed by Paul Schrader, best known as the screenwriter behind Raging Bull and Taxi Driver. The film's cast also includes Amanda Brooks, Nolan Gerard Funk and director Gus Van Sant in a rare acting role.

The project reached its production budget thanks to contributions on fundraising website Kickstarter and shooting took place in LA over the summer. There is no official release date yet, but The Canyons is expected to hit cinemas in 2013.
