On Oct. 5, 2017, New York Times investigative reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey published an article titled "Harvey Weinstein Paid Off Sexual Harassment Accusers for Decades," which would help propel the #MeToo movement that was started by Tarana Burke in 2006.
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 Entertainment* and 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.
BTW, before we get going here, if you want to know absolutely nothing about the film going into it, be sure to bookmark this for later. I won't reveal any major spoilers, but obviously, I gotta talk about the film somehow!
