The reporters who triggered Harvey Weinstein's downfall with the first report detailing allegations of sexual harassment against the movie mogul will have their roles portrayed in a Hollywood movie.
New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey scooped a Pulitzer Prize for their reports, which helped ignite the Me Too movement.
It was revealed on Wednesday (April 25) that the rights to a film about their efforts were purchased by Annapurna Pictures and Brad Pitt-run Plan B, which has won Oscars with Moonlight, 12 Years A Slave and The Departed.
The New York Times and magazine The New Yorker shared a Pulitzer Prize, journalism's highest honour, for their investigations into Weinstein.
About 100 women have publicly accused the producer of sexual harassment and assault. Weinstein, 66, denies all allegations of non-consensual sex.
