A Documentary About The Harvey Weinstein Scandal Is In The Works

Published

on

Soon audiences will be able to watch a documentary about the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal. 

BBC Two announced on Monday that the network has commissioned a two-part documentary that will detail the multiple sexual misconduct allegations against the film producer and his inevitable fall from grace. “Weinstein” the working title of the film will be directed by Ursula MacFarlane (director of “Charlie Hebdo: 3 Days That Shook Paris”) and produced by two-time Academy Award winner Simon Chinn

“This film promises to be the definitive take on the Weinstein scandal,” BBC commissioner Tom McDonald said. “As well as revealing the inside story of the past few months in minute detail, it will also look to the past to tell the story of abuses of power within Hollywood since its very origins and chart the rise of Harvey Weinstein himself over many decades.”

According to the network’s announcement, the film will include interviews with reporters, Hollywood insiders and the many actresses who came forward with stories about Weinstein. 

BBC Two controller Patrick Holland told BBC News that the recent reckoning of sexual misconduct in Hollywood will have far-reaching impacts, which is why they’re creating the documentary.

“The breaking of silence over Harvey Weinstein is a watershed moment for the creative industries and for wider society,” he said. 

Since the publication of two revealing reports in The New York Times and The New Yorker this fall, Weinstein has been accused by more than 60 women of some form of sexual misconduct, ranging from harassment to assault and rape. The producer has denied all allegations against him.

BBC has not set a release date for “Weinstein.”

“Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is the upcoming Brad Pitt release everyone can’t stop talking about right now, but the actor has another project set to open before “Hollywood” that ought to be on everyone’s radar. At least, that is if it actually opens in 2019 at all. Pitt is the lead in James Gray’s science-fiction epic “Ad Astra,” and the director recently cast doubt on meeting the film’s deadline while speaking with The Film Stage.

“It’s exciting, but it’s far from finished,” Gray said when asked for “Ad Astra” updates. “I’m here [at the Marrakech Film Festival], a little bit on vacation. I’m really tired because the previous movie [“The Lost City of Z”] was physically very difficult. It was both Europe and the jungle and this one I thought would be easier. Not easier like an easy movie to make but, like, physically easier and it was not. So I needed to come here. I have to go home. I have over 600 shots to review.”

“Ad Astra” stars Pitt as an Army Corps engineer who decides to go on an ambitious space mission to find out what happened to his father, an astronaut who never returned from a one-way mission to Neptune looking for signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence. The supporting cast includes Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland, and Jamie Kennedy.

20th Century Fox is behind “Ad Astra” and had originally set a January 11, 2019 opening date. The date had some thinking……………………………………..”

“We’ve talked about it with Netflix. They are going to do a presentation of our film the way it should be, in a theater, in certain venues, the best theatrical venues there can be,” De Niro said, hinting that there have been ongoing discussions with the streaming platform surrounding the release.

“How they resolve it is, in the beginning, they will show it on the big screen — we’re talking about big venues where it would play, where it should play — and what happens after that, I’m not sure,” he said, guessing that it would be released online at a later date.

It marks the second big film Netflix will release, following in the footsteps of Alfonso Curaon’s Oscar contender Roma in a limited theatrical run for awards season.
