CinemaCon: Universal Releases First Look at Harvey Weinstein’s She Said Movie

Universal has released its first look at Harvey Weinstein’s film She says at Cinema-Con.

The film, slated for release on November 18, is based on the true story of the Pulitzer Prize winner New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey as they investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against a disgraced producer.

It follows the storyline of the 2019 book She said: Breaking down the sexual harassment story that helped spark a movement of Kantor, played by Zoe Kazan in the film. Twohey is played by Carey Mulligan.

The new clip shows Kazan and Mulligan meeting with sources as they face pressure to navigate obstacles to the truth.

“It caused a domino effect, the #MeToo movement for lasting change,” Mulligan told CinemaCon on Wednesday (April 27). “It was an honor to represent these women.”

Other cast members of the film include Patricia Clarkson and Samantha Morton. It is directed by Maria Schrader and written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz.

Weinstein was convicted of sexual assault and third-degree rape at his 2020 New York criminal trial.

The 69-year-old was sentenced to 23 years in prison after being found guilty of assaulting two women.

The verdict was seen as a landmark moment for the #MeToo movement. It came more than two years after allegations against the former producer were published in The New York Times and the new yorker.
