Following Promising Young Woman, the film about Weinstein and #MeToo will be Mulligan’s second film in a row to explore themes of sexual assault, consent, and accountability for male perpetrators of sexual violence.
The same author of the New York Times report, Kantor, confirmed the news on social media. She shared a screenshot of Deadline’s article and wrote: ‘I’m so excited to share that the SHE SAID movie is getting ready for production. It is about the power generated by only a small group of brave women and sources who step forward.
