She Said, Harvey Weinstein investigation film, to release in November 2022
Directed by Maria Schrader, the film stars Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor
Weinstein investigation movie, She Said, has a release date. Universal Pictures' dramatic feature retelling of The New York Times' investigation of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal which sparked the #MeToo movement, will hit theatres on November 18, 2022.
The film stars Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who unraveled the sexual harassment and assault allegations levied against Weinstein over the past two decades, and sparked a cultural reckoning. Their efforts resulted in the producer being sentenced to 23 years in prison on charges of sexual assault and third-degree rape.
Notably, Kantor and Twohey won Pulitzer Prizes for the story, which was published in October 2017 and detailed accounts of numerous women who claimed Weinstein abused or harassed them. Weinstein’s downfall led to a series of #MeToo accusations against high-profile Hollywood figures such as Les Moonves, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer and Brett Ratner.
German actor and filmmaker, Maria Schrader, best known for directing the Netflix limited series Unorthodox, is helming She Said. Rebecca Lenkiewicz has adapted the screenplay to screen, which is based on Twohey and Kantor’s best-selling book She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement.
She Said is produced by Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner for Plan B Entertainment. Annapurna Studios founder Megan Ellison is executive producing with Sue Naegle.
