Scarlett Johansson has signed on to star in “Rub & Tug.” It’s based on the story of Jean Marie Gill, a woman who flourished in the male-dominated business of massage parlors and prostitution. She did it by taking on the physical identity of man. In other words, she was a cross-dresser.
Between Gill’s massage parlors and an anabolic steroids ring that helped fuel the Pittsburgh Steelers’ NFL dynasty, she took on the mob and became a major crime kingpin of the 1970s. She cross-dressed and leaned on her allies in the gay community to help grow her empire.
So far, no production dates have been given.
