Director writing 'horror' film about Weinstein

De Palma has been questioned aboud the violent treatment of women in his films which include Scarface and Carlito's Way

Harvey Weinstein turns himself in to the New York Police Department's First Precinct after being served with criminal charges by the Manhattan District Attorney's office on May 25, 2018 in New York City.

"I'm now writing a film about this scandal, which I am actually discussing with a French producer", De Palma said.

As reported by BBC News, De Palma, who last directed 2012's Passion with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, said he's been following the Weinstein situation "very closely".

De Palma most recently completed Domino, a thriller about a police officer seeking justice for his partner's murder, that stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Carice van Houten, and Guy Pearce, and which is awaiting distribution.

De Palma, whose films include the horror classics Carrie and Dressed to Kill, and crime films Scarface and Carlito's Way, revealed the planned film in an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien about his upcoming novel.


Mr Weinstein was arrested and charged with rape, a criminal sex act, sex abuse, and sexual misconduct.

His lawyer has said he denies the charges against him. "Mr. Weinstein intends to enter a plea of Not Guilty and vigorously defend against these unsupported allegations that he strongly denies".

The 77-year-old said he was in contact with a French producer to see if he could get the project off the ground, but did not elaborate on how soon he thought the movie might get made. "I know a lot of the people involved", he told AFP.

He said: "It will be interesting to see what is going to happen when women start controlling the aesthetic. Because a lot of movies are about the male gaze, what the male sees".
