The Busy Get Busier

“Overdressed When Naked” is getting stitched up to star the very busy Melissa George. She wound three movies last year and is in preparation for the HBO “In Treatment” series with Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Wiest, which will air in consecutive nights next season. “Naked” is the biopic of the also ever-busy Nikki Haskell. She’s written the draft script of her story, which takes place from 1972-1977, between the opening of The Daisy in BevHills and the close of Studio 54 in New York.  During that period, Nikki was married-divorced while a stockbroker. Her next, successful career was in the launch of her StarCaps diet pills–the giant billboard of which decorated the Sunset Strip for years. She’s added to that diet division her StarCruncher weight loss system. Meanwhile, the Aussie-born Melissa George is also the face of the Australian jewelry company Linneys and the new face and spokesperson for the cosmetics company Napoleon Perdis. Her husband is director Claudio Dabet (“Pretendiendo”), and Haskell says he will produce and direct wife Melissa as Nikki in “Overdressed When Naked.”
