Brad Pitt to produce Harvey Weinstein bombshell scandal movie

Brad Pitt to produce Harvey Weinstein

Hollywood actor Brad Pitt returns to the big screen, as the producer of the next film about disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein.

In the film, Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan will play reporters who discover Weinstein’s story of sexual abuse against several young female artists.

Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B and Annapurna Pictures reportedly obtained the rights to Harvey Weinstein’s story.

They will especially aim to tell the “story behind the women who led the investigation.”

The film is about the team of reporters who tracked down, persecuted and spread this story.

Harvey Weinstein has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct, but Brad Pitt has a personal history of harassing the filmmaker.

Brad Pitt’s ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, and several other stars, including Salma Hayek, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Asia Argento and Gwyneth Paltrow, brought allegations of sexual assault, stalking and rape on Weinstein.

The former movie mogul is serving a 23-year prison sentence in New York after being convicted of rape and sexual assault on two women.

Harvey Weinstein has so far denied wrongdoing.
