How the #MeToo movement is changing Hollywood

The ramifications of the rise of the #MeToo movement in Hollywood and the increased spotlight on gender inequality and sexual misconduct in the movie business have spread way beyond the accusers and the accused.

Take veteran movie producer David Permut, whose credits include “Hackshaw Ridge” and “Face/Off”. Permut had spent almost a decade developing a biopic about late film director Russ Meyer, nicknamed the “King of Sexploitation”, and his collaboration with movie critic Roger Ebert.

“Russ & Roger Go Beyond” was to have been filmed this year, starring Will Ferrell and Josh Gad and directed by Irish filmmaker John Carney.
