It looks like the Tavor may replace the Uzi as Hollywood's favorite "sexy" Israeli gun.

Hollywood studios are interested in buying Micro Tavors, the smallest version of Israel's newest assault rifle, for their latest action movies, for obvious reasons.

Placing the magazine and firing chamber behind the trigger (bullpup configuration) enables the rifle to have a relatively long barrel for its compact size. The Tavor makes use of hi-tech composite materials to cut down on weight but this also gives it an aggressive futuristic look. In terms of accuracy, sophistication, and sexiness the Tavor has all over the Uzi.
