A trio of companies – Dubai-based Exwaze, Hollywood-based Hughes Capital Entertainment and Mos Def’s Garden Grown Entertainment are teaming for a film about the first desegregated Las Vegas casino reports Variety.

Scribe Milosz Feigin has completed penning “The Fabulous Moulin Rouge” about the hotel that opened in 1955 and closed six months later under mysterious circumstances just as it was gaining momentum and attracting singers such as Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra.

The drama will focus on a fictional African-American character who rises from mob debt collector to manager of the casino. Filming will take place in Dubai.
