Brad Pitt’s Movie Company Plan B Acquires The Hacker Story ‘Anonymous vs. Steubenville’
The producers of “12 Years a Slave” will adapt a Rolling Stone article about a hacker who exposed the cover-up of a rape and was subsequently jailed for his actions.
Fresh off their Oscar win for 12 Years a Slave, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and their Plan B production company will produce a movie based on a true story about a hacker who helped catch two rapists — and then was jailed for his actions.

New Regency and Brett Ratner and James Packer’s RatPac Entertainment teamed up to buy the rights to the Rolling Stone article “Anonymous vs. Steubenville,” written by David Kushner, for Plan B to produce. The two companies are also financing development of the project.
Published in November 2013, the article tells the story of Deric Lostutter, a member of the hacker group Anonymous who helped expose a cover-up of the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two high school football players in Steubenville, Ohio.
After releasing a video made by the football players that showed them with the rape victim, Lostutter’s home was raided by the FBI and he was charged with identity theft and threatening action against the rapists. He could spend more than a decade in prison — while the rapists he helped catch spent only one year in jail.
Sources say the producers currently are considering writers and directors for the project. Plan B’s Jeremy Kleiner will also produce.
Along with producing best picture Oscar-winner 12 Years a Slave, Plan B’s recent films include World War Z, Killing Them Softly and The Tree of Life. The company’s upcoming films include True Story, directed by Rupert Goold and starring James Franco. Pitt, who will next appear in David Ayer’s WWII tank drama Fury, is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment.

Hopefully now the rest of the world will see the GOOD in Anonymous instead of what the news corporations tell them…WOOHOO
We need their help in Sayreville, just look up the post over the years about the coach and players came out from the 30 years and the press won’t even give them their say.
Epicness! I can’t wait to see it!
Yeah, now that Sabu is free, maybe he can star in it. And if Brad Pitt wants to cast real hackers in it, I’m sure Sabu can help him find some. No wait, he already gave them up to the Feds to stay out of Jail.
Like I said on a reply to anouther person…
Sounds like a mouse trap with the word FEDS all over it ( as far mister brad pit wanting reall hackers casted in the movie)..
Out side I whould like to see how this movie will be made out…..
Brad Pitt for a fact is part of the New World Order , so why would you promote his movie which is probably full of propaganda just like 12 Years a Slave? I think it would be better to get people that on our side to create a factual movie.
I don’t trudt this move at all as his wife Angelina Jolie plays in a wicked Freemason inspired Disney movie now called Maleficent and Disney profuctions areceicked ss we know! Also she’s staff of UN which is thecworst globalist shit group ever! So Anonyymous what’s the deal? Attracted by celebrities too?! 🙁
