Lone Scherfig attached to the drama

Jessica Biel Is A Mob Girl

Jessica Biel’s stepping up to produce and star in Mob Girl, based on the real-life story of a mafia mistress, and now An Education’s Lone Scherfig is attached to direct it.

Mob Girl, which will be based on Teresa Carpenter’s book, 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, and even bedded a few.

But years of abuse at the hands of her Mafia associates eventually led her to become a government witness.

This one is still in the early stages – the project doesn’t even have a writer yet, so chances are Scherfig will make Anne Hathaway rom-com One Day first.
