Tony Scott On Chippendales Biopic
It seems Tony Scott is taking an interest in muscular male strippers.
In news straight from the left field, Variety reports that the British director is set to helm the as-yet-untitled biopic about Chippendales founder Somen “Steve” Banerjee.
The Bengali immigrant-turned-millionaire entrepreneur’s dark side is the subject of this film. His mad paranoia and criminal nature led him to hang himself in a prison cell just hours before his sentencing.
Lisa Schrager, known for the Heidi Fleiss biopic Pay The Girl, is currently scripting the story. A start date for the film has yet to be announced.
