Annapurna and Plan B Entertainment have teamed to acquire rights to develop a feature film about the investigation that led New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey’s to break the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades-long history of sexual harassment and assault, a source told TheWrap.
The scandal wound up being the biggest Hollywood has seen in decades, leading to a slew of powerful men in the industry, including Weinstein, to lose their positions of power.
The stories from Kantor and Twohey won The New York Times a Pulitzer Prize earlier this month.
The upcoming film, which is in early development, will follow the investigation into Weinstein, not the man himself. The focus is on the team of reporters who tracked, chased and fought through threats to brake the story — think “Spotlight” or “All The President’s Men.”
