Hollywood executive Judd Apatow claims a huge pedophilia scandal, the likes of which we have never seen, is about to rock Hollywood to its very core in the next few months.

In an extensive interview with Deadline released Friday, the producer-director claims that the sexual assault and pedophilia scandals that have rocked Hollywood in the last few weeks are just the “tip of the iceberg” and claims a bigger, darker scandal is about to really shake things up.

Breitbart.com reports: While Apatow proposed several reforms for the industry, he warned that it could be some time before the flood of allegations against prominent figures subsides.

“This has been happening since the creation of the movie business—watch the documentary about Marilyn Monroe,” Apatow told Deadline. “The old studio heads expected all these women to sleep with them, and some version of that type of abuse continues to this day. It might not be with studio heads, but producers and other actors or actresses. The other day online, someone put up an article from 1945 with Maureen O’Hara complaining about this, in 1945. So, it’s a good thing that it’s being discussed, but there’s a lot more coming.”

“You can feel that it’s just the beginning, because there are a lot of people who’ve been afraid to talk for a long time, and they feel like things are changing, and they can finally come forward,” he continued. “And I would assume this is going to happen through the summer.”

Apatow — who is set to be honored by the ACLU next month for his advocacy on behalf of women in the arts — has been vocal about the scandal currently sweeping through Hollywood. He has previously accused staffers at The Weinstein Company of knowing about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual abuses and failing to act, and has also slammed actresses for continuing to work with director Woody Allen.

“I think leaders in the industry should get together—the heads of the studios, the heads of the agencies, the heads of management companies, the heads of production companies—get together in a room, and share their experiences, and talk about how they manage their employees and their sets, and try to come up with constructive ways to approach this, going forward,” Apatow told Deadline. “That’s what you need.”
