Brad Pitt is Producing a Movie About Harvey Weinstein

Brad Pitt is set to produce a film about the Harvey Weinstein investigation.

The 54-year-old Fury star and his production company Plan B Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures have acquired the rights to a story focusing on the 66-year-old disgraced film producer.

Specifically, the film will showcase New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey‘s investigation of Harvey’s pattern of sexual misconduct that came to light in October 2017, THR reports.

There are no writers or filmmakers on board yet.

Brad, who has worked with Harvey‘s company on Inglourious Basterds and Killing Them Softly, once confronted him after learning about his sexual misconduct toward Gwyneth Paltrow, whom Brad was dating at the time.

    Will be very interesting to see how this is done.

  • SummerDZ

    I like that this movie is focusing on the WOMEN that broke the story. Not many films do that. So GO PLAN B.

  • Angie Bradley

    Plan B always Produces interesting films. Beside someone was going to do a story about this at some point. And as you said this one will be focusing on the women that broke the story. And that to me is what makes it interesting. I hope they get a Female Director. That would be really smart.

  • SummerDZ

    A female director would be a wonderful move. My head spins thinking about all the products Brad’s Production Company has in the works. Besides they are doing a lot of TV too. He said he wanted to get more involved in Producing. And after saying that you can see how much they have on their slate.

  • Janet Misowa

    This movie plan sounds promising, Plan B has an eye for interesting subjects.

  • Beedyq

    Great news that the backstory of this investigation by these outstanding journalists is being made into a film….

  • JPlove

    This should be very good especially since Brad has firsthand knowledge of HW’s behavior.

    Could be another Spotlight but better. The tone was very flat…no emotional build etc .

  • Beedyq

    Yeah in the Spotlight mode but with more intensity…hope the screenwriter that is hired is able to interject more emotion…..

  • JPlove

    Did you see it in 2D, 3D, Imax, or regular screen? I’m taking my nephew to see it tomorrow.

  • Angie Bradley

    Yes.. hope we see the Boss man soon.

  • Passing Through

    Thanks for the bread crumb trail on the last thread…

  • Passing Through

    A few people at work are taking the day off tomorrow to see it. I rolled my eyes…

  • Passing Through

    Don’t know if anybody watched this last night but I found it interesting – CNN’s Town Hall with James Comey at his alma mater William & Mary. All questions asked by the audience – faculty, staff and students – with Anderson Cooper moderating and asking followup questions.. As I was watching this I kept saying Jack Webb saying, “Just the facts, ma’am.” LOL!

    One thing that was funny though was Comey talking about how he’s never seen Drumpf laugh. That he found one clip on YT of Drumpf laughing but it was a mean laugh. I just remember thinking about something I read about sociopaths – if you’re talking to someone and you yawn…and they don’t yawn, too, then chances are they are a sociopath because yawning is a sympathetic response and sociopaths don’t have sympathetic responses. Wonder how many people have tried yawning in front of Drumpf?

    It would have done the same thing if the journalists were men. Just saying.

  • DEADP00L

    Hope its treated like Spotlight was and walks us down how the journalists worked.

  • GroundControl500

    I need to start using that yawn test on my clients.
    😱

  • GroundControl500

    I like that, too. 👏🏼

  • GroundControl500

    I wasn’t all that impressed with Spotlight. Very by the numbers.

  • Malf

    I still don’t understand how it won Best Picture. It was a paint by numbers docudrama.

  • Malf

    Hehee…thinking same thoughts.

  • toastie postie

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. I know!!!! It was good but….

  • GroundControl500

    Well this should be great. How great would it be to do a treatment like The Big Short. I know I know everyone would be up in arms and all sensitive but in reality the Weinstein debacle isn’t any worse than all those people who were thrown out of their homes by banks and greedy companies.

    Ridicule can be a great punishment.

  • GroundControl500

    Careful, Gretel. You never know where a crumb trail will lead.

    Love, Hansel

  • GroundControl500

    A FEMALE director? Gee wonder who Brad could get. 😂😂😂📽👼🏼

  • GroundControl500

    Totally agree. I was very disappointed.

  • GroundControl500

    Well we are mensa twins. 💡💡

  • Jaye

    I hear that there are quite a few surprises. I’m going to take a box of Kleenex with me. The directors said some things will be heartbreaking.

    You need time to recover??? lol

  • Jaye

    I thought about seeing it in Imax 2d because it was filmed entirely in Imax, but I don’t think i can take that much screen with this film. They’ll find me slumped over in my reclining seat. lol

  • Felinelilly

    Yes a new thread!! The last one was just out of control messed up, hopefully Disqus will work now.

    Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria Dakota Johnson dance scene clip is bone-wrenchingly horrific. And Timothee Chalamet and Steve Cartel are Oscar-bound with Beautiful Boy.

    Lol! Maybe to beat the crowds? Even in my small town/theater it was sold out. I went 2 hours early to buy my ticket and the lines formed an hour before.

  • Felinelilly

    I was watching a documentary style thing called When Harry Met Meghan last night, about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and in the segment when they were going over who each was and what they’d done in their lives, they were talking about Meghan’s fanbase from Suits and the woman goes, “she had some fans but she wasn’t world famous, she’s not Angelina Jolie”. lol
    It got too tabloid-y at the end so I stopped watching, but other than that it wasn’t that badly done.

    OT the new royal baby is named Prince Louis Arthur Charles. Nice .

  • Lylian

    Louis? Ok.

  • Lylian

    How many Instagram followers did she have?

  • Felinelilly

    I like it. I wonder if they pronounce it with the “s” silent or if they pronounce it “Lewis”.

  • Lylian

    Did he live?

    Why do police need to be so forceful in the USA?

  • Lylian

    I think that is the plan

  • Lylian

    I think that is the plan

  • Felinelilly

    Meghan? I have no idea, but they talked about her blog and that it had a lot of followers before she had to shut it down when she joined the royal family.
