Uhh, you're mostly right.

Sounds like they're still annoyed with themselves at missing the LOTR gravy train. ;-)

The Weinsteins will retain control of the Dimension label, which has produced a raft of films aimed at teenagers and children, including the Scream franchise = the really really really big money

scott seward (scott seward), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 16:46 (fifteen years ago) link

bob has always been the big moneymaker with dimension.

scott seward (scott seward), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 16:47 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah, dimension is what kept miramax afloat all those years

five years pass...

The Weinstein Company and Miramax -- the studio the Weinstein brothers founded and then sold -- announced a gigantic partnership deal on Thursday (via The Hollywood Reporter), agreeing to create sequels of the smash hit films that the Weinsteins produced for the studio before starting their new production company.

A number of big films are set to see second installments added to their canon: 'Shakespeare In Love,' 'Bad Santa,' 'Swingers,' 'Rounders,' 'Bridget Jones's Diary,' are some of the most famous names to be in line for the part two treatment.

Just finished Peter Biskind's Down and Dirty Pictures: Miramax, Sundance, and the Rise of Independent Film. (Awful title.) Was actually published only a couple of months before the event that started this thread--he gives no indication that that's around the corner. Anyway, as someone who's mostly ignorant about the business end of things, I now know more about these people than I ever wanted to know, and I'm amazed a single movie ever gets made.

Lisa Bloom, one of Weinstein’s attorneys who specializes in sexual harassment cases, adds that she has been advising him on “gender and power dynamics” for the past year, calling him “an old dinosaur learning new ways.” She adds that she’s “explained to him that due to the power difference between a major studio head like him and most others in the industry, whatever his motives, some of his words and behaviors can be perceived as inappropriate, even intimidating.”

she’s right of course in that what he did there wasn’t “illegal”, it’s just the baseline for any number of abusive pieces of shit operating in a lot of industries and of course really prevalent in Hollywood. Maybe less so now, but maybe just barely. Scott Rudin won’t get run out of town for that behavior tho he probably should be.

The suit included complaints that date back four decades, and some of the plaintiffs involved are minors. The filing also alleged that Nygard kept a “database of potential victims” — over 7,500 women and underage girls — on his company’s server.

The FBI had also reportedly investigated trafficking claims against Nygard in 2015 and 2017, according to the BBC.
