In a new film, “The Dig” actor Carey Mulligan and “The Big Sick” actor Zoe Kazan are playing real-life New York Times journalists, uncovering the Harvey Weinstein scandal that prompted the #metoo movement.

The film, titled “She Said,” is based on the best-selling nonfiction work “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement.” Penned by “Ida” screenwriter Rebecca Lenkiewicz, the film is directed by “Unorthodox” and “I’m Your Man” maker Maria Schrader.



The official synopsis reads, “Two-time Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation— a story that helped propel the #MeToo movement, shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and altered American culture forever.”

The cast also includes Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher, Samantha Morton, Tom Pelphrey and Adam Shapiro.

“She Said” will open in theatres on November 18, 2022.
