This A-list producer is panicking.
Once a pivotal part of Hollywood, their influence continues to wane as their company loses steam and esteem.
They’re the joke of the town right now and experts aren’t exactly forecasting a change in fortune, even though they have one possible live-saving, super trump card in their pocket.

This is big news.
I told you an A list producer was panicking and now you see why.
A la Roger Ailes in 2016, the powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been outed as a perennial sexual harasser by the New York Times and the Daily Mail with allegations appearing that Weinstein asked Ashley Judd to watch him shower and paid the actress Rose McGowan $100,000 as part of a settlement after an incident in a hotel room.
Weinstein has also reportedly harassed female employers of the Weinstein Company over the years.
The most interesting part about this scandal is the timing. Most of the events date back to the 90’s and 2000’s and yet suddenly it’s relevant and coming out now? I did warn you Harvey Weinstein’s influence was waning.
Funnily enough Weinstein hasn’t played the life-saving Trump card I mentioned last year, but did allude to it in his statement responded to the accusations, saying: “I’m making a movie about our president” followed by a thinly veiled threat.
Weinstein plans to sue the New York Times over the article.
