Ben Stiller’s Chippendales Movie Is Being Called Magic Mike Meets Scarface

Written by 

Over the course of the last three decades, Ben Stiller has stood out as one of Hollywood's most consistent and eclectic performers. From full-blown comedies like Tropic Thunder to quieter dramas like The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, he has increasingly diversified his resume and shown an incredible range of talents.

Now it looks like he will soon put all of those abilities on full display, as his next major project -- described as a combination of Magic Mike and Scarface -- sounds like one of his most bizarre films yet.

More information about Ben Stiller's upcoming film Chippendales (a.k.a I Am Chippendales) has officially started to roll in, and it makes the movie sound absolutely bonkers. The story will chronicle the creation of the now iconic male stripper franchise in 1980s Los Angeles, and feature Ben Stiller as Nick DeNoia -- a children's TV show producer who (among other things) played a pivotal role in the recruitment of strippers and choreographing the shows.

While the Magic Mike comparison seems fairly obvious, it appears that Chippendales will draw heavily from Scarface in the way that it chronicles a rise to power, the bastardization of the American Dream, and (eventually) cold-blooded murder.
