“The true story goes behind the scenes of the hoax of JT LeRoy, a woman who pretended to be a man who identifies as transgender, tricking the rich and famous in Hollywood, the fashion world and elite literary circles,” THR reports.

Director Justin Kelly will base the movie on the memoir of Savannah Kroop, the woman behind the scheme.
