From the Hollywood Reporter:
The true story of the secret love affair between two of the most popular leading men of Hollywood’s Golden Age is heading to the big screen. The true story of the secret love affair between two of the most popular leading men of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Tab Hunter and Anthony Perkins, is heading to the big screen thanks to Zachary Quinto and J.J. Abrams.
Titled Tab & Tony, the Paramount drama is based on Hunter’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. A search is underway for a director and actors to portray the two icons.
Tab & Tony is inspired by Hunter’s 2005 memoir, Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star, the New York Times best-seller that chronicles how the actor, a product of the studio system, ultimately rose above the pressure to conform to the boy-next-door image created for him to embrace his true identity and share his story.
