Brad Pitt Buys The Rights To Make A Movie About The Steubenville Rape Scandal, And The Victim Wants To Be Involved!
Back in the Summer of 2012, a scandal out of Steubenville, Ohio caught the country's attention after a girl was repeatedly raped and abused by a group of high school football players at a house party.
The story was initially broken thanks to Anonymous hacker Deric Lotstutter, who was a crucial part of exposing inciminating photos and tweets of the players involved in the scandal and was later profiled in a Rolling Stone article titled Anonymous vs Steubenville.
Well Brad Pitt's production company Plan B is planning on making a film about the story, and apparently the Steubenville victim wants to make sure she's involved.
The victim has yet to speak publicly about the horrific scandal, however, Deric says she's definitely interested in having her voice heard:
"Who better to tell her story than her? If her lawyer approves it we’re going to make Jane Doe a consultant to the movie."
We couldn't agree more.
Of course, the hard part will be finding a way to keep her involved while also keeping her identify under wraps. However, it definitely seems like a good idea to have her on board to make sure the story is told the right way.
