In a story from Variety, Tony Scott is attached to direct a film about Steve Banerjee. He was the man responsible for creating Chippendales, the male strip club that became a phenomenon in the 1980s.

Writing the script will be Lisa Schrager. She is adapting a manuscript that was written by Rodney Sheldon.

The film is supposed to have a tone that is similar to True Romance. Banerjee's life was one wild ride. One moment he was pumping gas in Culver City then he was running a high-end nightclub that evolved into Chippendales. Banerjee hired "a New York choreographer to polish the all-male dance troupe." He then made a lot of money but also became competitive and paranoid. Then he paid a hitman to murder the choreographer. Banerjee ended up dying in jail before his trial.
