Hollywood developing flick about former South Beach club capo Chris Paciello

As Michael Corleone once said, "Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in." Chris Paciello can relate. Variety reports that New Line is developing a script “based on the life of famed Miami nightclub owner Chris Paciello.” A subject we thought was as over as Paciello’s former night club Liquid and as relevant as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake, apparently Atlas Entertainment (The Dark Night, The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel) thinks the resurrection of Miami nights past is still celluloid-worthy and has tapped Emmy winning writer Adam Mazer, author of HBO’s acclaimed Kevorkian biopic, You Don’t Know Jack, to come up with an original screenplay.

As for Paciello, who works as a marketing consultant at the Delano overseeing the restaurant Bianca and watering hole FDR among other things, he's been leading a sort of low keyed life with the exception of a, er, DUI bust back in February. "I'm happy and humbled to finally have the right opportunity to tell my story," Paciello told us. Let the casting games begin. Leave your suggestions on who should play Paciello and co. in the comments section. As for his ex, Sofia Vergara, we have a feeling she'll pass on this one. And for the record, for everyone out there, a little fact checking: Paciello never, ever dated Madonna.

maybe he'll get whacked, like he deserves, before the pic is released. talk about pub.

Carmela Falsetto

If he deserved to get whacked, don't you think they would have done it already? He's not exactly in hiding and is pretty easy to find

This guys is the scum of the Earth. I can't believe that the Delano is so low that they would actually want to be affiliated with a guy like this. He is Murderer, thief, and all around scumbag.
