CAST DEV PATEL IN ALL THE THINGS!
This year has been, pardon my French, a shitshow. But, with every dark cloud comes a silver lining, and 2020’s silver lining comes in the form of Mr. Dev Patel.

Deadline also announced that I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie is attached to direct this film.
Yes. THOSE Chippendales.
Magic Mike was loosely based on Chippendales.
Before we get TOO excited — remember, he was also a murderer — Banerjee himself wasn’t a stripper, so not sure how much of, ahem, Dev Patel we’re gonna see.
Here’s hoping the director takes some creative license…
Still, the Patel-Hive is over the moon with this news and flooded to Twitter to express their excitement!
