Jessica Biel is set to produce and star in Mob Girl.
Based on the real-life story of a mafia mistress, the film will be directed by An Education’s Lone Scherfig.
Mob Girl follows Arlyn Brickman, who spent her life around racketeering types, with her grandmother and father as early examples. She ended up running packages and letting mobsters use her home as a safe haven. But years of abuse at the hands of her Mafia associates eventually led her to become a government witness.
The film is in the early stages with no writer yet attached to the project.
