Weinsteins reunite with Miramax, years after selling company to Disney
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Harvey and Bob Weinstein are reuniting with the film company they founded.
The Weinstein Co. announced Monday that it will produce and distribute films and TV shows based on Miramax's library. Founded in 1979 and named after their parents, Miramax was acquired by the Walt Disney Co. in 1993. The Weinsteins left in 2005 to form the Weinstein Co.
Miramax is currently owned by a group of owners, including the equity firm Colony Capital. The library includes hundreds of films, many of them from the heyday of 1990s independent cinema, including "Pulp Fiction."
The Weinstein Co. says it plans to develop TV series based on the films "Good Will Hunting" and "Flirting With Disaster." It also is exploring sequels or TV shows out of "Swingers" and "Shakespeare in Love."
