The New York Times journalists who broke the story of Harvey Weinstein's on-going sexual harassment will reportedly be the subject of a new Spotlight-esque film, documenting the downfall of the disgraced media mogul.

Weinstein who is under criminal investigation was sacked by the board of Directors from the Weinstein Company and the company plans on selling off their assets to settle their bankruptcy.

The film will not focus on the producer and his alleged victims, but instead on the journey towards publication of Kantor and Twohey, with Oscar-winning films Spotlight and All the President's Men cited as inspirations.

Plan B is the production partnership between Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, and upcoming projects in the roster include the Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet-starrer "Beautiful Boy", and Barry Jenkins' "Moonlight" follow-up "If Beale Street Could Talk".

Police said the boy was alive, but did not reveal any further details about his condition. The boy was swimming down to explore the hole when his leg became stuck.

Kantor and Twohey received a Pulitzer prize for the investigation.

The New York Times and magazine The New Yorker, which published an investigation by Ronan Farrow on the Weinstein scandal shortly afterwards, shared a Pulitzer Prize, journalism's highest honour, for their investigations into Weinstein.

Speaking on the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire show, Rose McGowan said that as recently as a month ago she was receiving calls and texts from harassers she assumes were deployed by Weinstein. It included on-the-record quotes and investigative reporting on alleged sexual abuse and cover-up by Weinstein, then one of the most awarded and respected movie moguls of the modern age. Weinstein has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone.
