Dev Patel, who was finalised to headline the film back in 2017, will play Steve Banerjee: an Indian immigrant who takes over the struggling LA club Destiny II and transforms it into the most sought-after place to hangout. 


The club in question makes way for the then famous 'Chippendales' theatre group but takes a hit when Banerjee's co-creator Paul Snider kills Banerjee's playmate girlfriend Dorothy Stratten. The tragic event leaves the protagonist into a downward spiral as he fields one legal battle after another.


If reports are true, then this project would be the reunion of Rogen and Gillespie, who has just finished the production work on his highly anticipated 'Pam and Tommy' series for Hulu, as per reports.
