The movie is due to film in New York in 2019.

Kitty reportedly spent more than a year researching public records and documents and conducting interviews for the upcoming project.

Kitty Green understands that the exercise of corporate bureaucratic power – so often structured against women and insidiously mobilized without fanfare against a vulnerable workforce – is its own kind of horror, and to understand fully Harvey Weinstein’s depredations requires knowing the setting that made them possible to continue for so long. In doing so, Kitty is creating a cinematic experience like no other before it,” said co-producer James Schamus.
