Weinsteins' Miramax Deal Falls Apart
Bob and Harvey Weinstein relax after attending Sunday morning mass.
A $600 million deal between Disney and the Weinstei brothers has fallen through, leaving the fate of Miramaxup in the air. While an agreement between the two parties was once considered inevitable, The Wrap reports that "legal minutiae and details of the library split caused the talks to drag on and ultimately fizzle."
Bob and Harvey Weinstein founded Miramax in 1979, but sold it to Disney in 1993. Now that the deal has fallen through, insiders speculate that the brothers have grown tired of the Hollywood racket and are leaving show business to pursue a simpler life. Rumors are swirling that the pair have set their sites on acquiring Bagel Nosh, a New York style breakfast spot and deli in Santa Monica, CA. Lox of luck, boys! (First Showing)
