LOS ANGELES — A new film about late porn pioneer Reuben Sturman is reportedly being developed by Emmy Award winning scribe Adam Mazer, writer of HBO’s Jack Kavorkian bio “You Don’t Know Jack.”

The Hollywood Reporter said the Sturman film – “Rube” – will be based on the career of the man who in the 1950’s began selling "girlie magazines" in Ohio, imported porn from Europe and brought peep shows to America.

Despite legal challenges, Sturman reportedly became a billionaire in the ‘70’s but got into business with the Gotti mob in New York, ended up in jail and died penniless.

Jones, a Philadelphia native, acquired life rights from Sturman's son.
