Director Tony Scott to Make Chippendales Film! 

Alright ladies, before you get too excited, the film will focus on the rise and fall of Steve Banerjee, the man behind Chippendales! But I'm sure, you'll still be able to see male strippers in full Chippendales mode :happy

Director Tony Scott is attached to direct and produce the film, and the script will be written by Lisa Schrager.

If you think the "True Romance" director is going soft on us, think again. Apparently, the film is going to duplicate the tone of "True Romance" as it sets its focus on Banerjee, a gas attendant from Culver City who created one of the most well-branded male revue shows!

Banerjee became super rich but also paranoid and hired a hitman to kill the show's choreographer. He died in jail awaiting trial.

See? Behind the thong-wearing show, lies a gripping true-life tale.

Uncut "Metropolis" to be Shown at the Berlin Film Festival 

Without the heart there can be no understanding between the Hands and the Mind.--Fritz Lang

Those immortal words from the glorious "Metropolis" will be seen on the big screen again in its full, uncut glory!

The Berlin Film Festival will show the original cut of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" at a gala ceremony on Feb. 10.

The great sci-fi silent film, written by Lang and Thea von Harbou, is one of the most influential films in the history of cinema. It originally bombed at the box-office when it opened on Jan. 10, 1927.

So the UFA studio re-edited the film, took away 30 minutes of the movie, and then re-released in eight months later to great acclaim!

The outtakes were considered long gone, but Variety is saying that in 2008, "a 16 mm negative of the original was found in Buenos Aires. The original has since been restored by the Murnau Foundation in cooperation with ZDF, Arte and the Deutsche Kinemathek."

And now, during the festival's 60th anniversary, the original cut that Lang intended will be finally seen.

Take a look at one of my favorite scenes in the film, Maria's (Brigitte Helm) transformation to the iconic robot:
