The movie will be based on Tab’s first-person account of “his struggle to come to terms with his sexual orientation in 1950s Hollywood, an era in which being openly gay was taboo.”

J.J. and Zachary will co-produce along with Allan Glaser, who is Tab‘s longtime partner. Doug Wright will pen the screenplay.

Tab & Tony is based on Tab‘s bestselling 2005 memoir Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star.

The search for a director and actors is now underway.

    Yes, but I want it depicted vividly on the silver screen; preferably (and ironically) with Leo DiCaprio in the lead role. Is that too much to ask?
