Ben Stiller in talks for stripper drama ‘I Am Chippendales’

Stiller

Ben Stiller is in early talks to take a lead role in Alan Ball’s stripper drama I Am Chippendales.

According to Deadline, Stiller would play the choreographer who turned the all-male dance revue into a internationally recognised phenomenon.

Before you begin picturing Stiller in the tearaway pants, Magic Mike style, it’s worth noting the dark undercurrent to this true tale.

‘Chippendales’ founder Steve Banerjee would go on to hire a hitman to take out his choreographer after becoming intensely paranoid.

Ball, who won the Original Screenplay Oscar for American Beauty, is shopping the project around as a potential directorial project, with The Weinstein Company close to picking up the rights.
