Well it is around the same weight as an e36 m3. I'm sure with some weight loss it can be brought down a few hundred pounds, but the target market for most of the new BMWs aren't people that are concerned about weight as much as safety and features, therefore i doubt BMW will build a cheaper/lighter 1M coupe.
If they ever do it, it will most likely be a limited production CSL/GTS/LTW/watever and we all know that will cost more.
