Carey Mulligan And Zoe Kazan Shine In “She Said,” The Story Of The Journalists Who Helped Take Down Harvey Weinstein

At the time, the story shook Hollywood, and just a few months after it dropped, Hollywood producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner from Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainmentand executive producers Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle from Annapurna Pictures secured the film rights to it. The result would end up becoming the new film She Said.

*I do want to address the fact that Brad Pitt, who recently had abuse allegations brought against him by his former spouse Angelina Jolie, is also an executive producer on the film. Admittedly, development and production of She Said happened before these allegations against Pitt (and I don’t know how involved in the film he even was). However, it’s still an ironic fact that has not been lost on people (or myself), considering there’s literally a line in the film that says, “This is bigger than Weinstein, this is about the system protecting abusers.” Of course, Pitt’s personal life should not undermine the hard work of all the other filmmakers, actors, and women whose stories are being told, but I think it’s worth being transparent about given the subject of the film.
