Canceling That Movie is Just INNNNNSANE!

As I write on Dealerscope, it looks like the Danny DeVito-directed biopic of consumer electronics entrepreneur-turned-convict “Crazy” Eddie Antar is off- for complex legal reasons.
As reported by Deadline.com, the producers secured Antar’s life rights- which caused various victims of Antar’s swindles to threaten to place a lien on the film. DeVito and Co. have since cut ties with Eddie, and hope to eventually revive the film.
A shame, too- I could’ve imagined this being a great, great movie, sort of like Soderbergh’s “The Informant” only with New York accents, and even more nuts.
