'Chippendales' story coming to the big screen
Tony Scott has spent of his career directing action flicks such as "Top Gun," "True Romance," "Crimson TIde" and "Man on Fire." Like his brother Ridley, Scott always has numerous projects in development, but if the Steve Banerjee story comes to fruition it will be a radical departure for the filmmaker.
Banerjee was the man responsible for creating Chippendales, the famous all-male dance troupe. The former gas station attendant spearheaded the 80s phenomenon, but after becoming wildly rich his life fell apart as he became increasingly paranoid. Things got so bad, Banjerjee hired a hitman to murder a choreographer he became unhappy with. He died in jail awaiting trial.
Scott is currently directing "Unstoppable" with Denzel Washington and Chris Pine.
A screenplay for the Chippendales story is currently in the works. Whether the dancers ever hit the big screen remains to be seen.
