With his array of films, who knew that Tony Scott had a thing for Chippendales? I mean, I dressed up as one for Halloween once, but that's as far as I took it. Scott instead plans on directing a film all about them.

Tony Scott to Cover Chippendales


Or, should I say, about them and their creator, Steve Banerjee. Penned by Lisa Schrager (Pay the Girl), the story will have a similar tone to the Scott-directed True Romance as it follows the improbable rise and fall of Banerjee, who went from pumping gas in Culver City to running a high-end nightclub that evolved into Chippendales. After hiring a New York choreographer to polish the all-male dance troupe, Banerjee became wildly rich, as well as unreasonably competitive and paranoid. Banerjee hired a hitman to murder the choreographer when negotiations went sour. After being arrested, Banerjee died in jail awaiting trial.

But he had a faaaabulous run. The project is currently trying to raise money.
