Brian De Palma is returning to the horror genre with a new script inspired by Harvey Weinstein.
He made“Carrie,” and now according to the French publication Le Parisien (via The Playlist) that he will be taking on Weinstein’s sexual harassment and abuse in a new film.
Weinstein will not be a named character in the film, but he will inspire the movie’s narrative.
“I’m writing a film about this scandal, a project I’m talking about with a French producer,” De Palma said. “My character won’t be named Harvey Weinstein but it will be a horror film, with a sexual aggressor, and it will take place in the film industry.”
