Weinstein has denied any allegations of non-consensual sex as well as retaliation, saying in a statement through his lawyer that the Times piece from last Octoberwas "saturated with false and defamatory statements."
Pitt's untitled film, which doesn't have a script yet, will reportedly delve less into Weinstein's alleged misdeeds and more into the reporters' investigations -- and the fallout that they faced -- that led to his downfall.
"Gwyneth was someone important to him and he did what he thought was right," the source said at the time. "He didn't think about the consequences to his career that might come from confronting Harvey; he just did what he needed to."
