Variety has just reported that Bob and Harvey Weinstein and Disney have settled the distribution on the Miramax company’s assets. The Miramax co-founders will leave The Walt Disney Co. in Sept. to launch their own film distribution company, Disney and the Weinsteins said Tuesday.
As was expected, Disney will retain the Miramax name and the library of more than 800 films. The Weinsteins will keep the Dimension Films brand. That’s a very smart move on the Weinstein’s part because Dimension has some very hot properties, including Sin City, which is being released this Friday, April 1, 2005.
We’ll have more on this story, as we get it.
