Posted: Updated:

The Steubenville rape case story may be headed to the big screen.

Published reports indicate Brad Pitt's production company Plan B Entertainment has bought the rights to a Rolling Stone feature called "Anonymous vs. Steubenville," covering the case, with plans to turn the piece into a movie.

Trent Mays and Ma'Lik Richmond were found guilty of the rape of a 16-year-old girl in March of 2013. The case gained national attention after the group Anonymous became involved, sparking protests outside the trial as well as the Jefferson County Courthouse.
