Nightclub cinema is not, nor will it ever be, a real genre, but if it were — you clearly have to entertain my notions right now — only a few would be prime entries into the canon. This year’s Sleepless Night might be a contender; 54 could get a shout-out; I, personally, think Boogie Nights is a strong contender; and I know a few people like 24 Hour Party People. With any luck, we could have another film to add to this ersatz list.
According to Variety, New Line Cinema and Atlas Entertainment are moving forward with a (currently) untitled biopic of Chris Paciello. Once known as the “King of Miami,” this former club maven had a hot ’90s streak of sex, drugs, and general excess, but one that came to a close when, in 2000, he was arrested for a money-related killing. Adam Mazer (Breach) will be writing the screenplay, while Charles Roven (The Dark Knight Rises), Richard Suckle, and William Green are working with Atlas. There’s no word on a director, star, or even release window, though I’d think the interesting material and high-profile producer would attract somebody sooner rather than later.

The amount he speaks of working with his actors should give you [...]
