Miramax bought by Disney

Disney and the Weinstein Brothers finally came to an agreement to axe the two brothers out of the picture. They’re getting around $100 million and they will be turning right around to open another company. The new company will be a media company rather than just a straight up film studio.

Why am I writing about this? Well, I was listening to NPR and heard about this whole legal battle between the Weinsteins and Disney. Here comes the interesting part: Miramax used to be an indie film company. Yeah. Shocked the crap out of me, too. Anyhow, don’t forget to buy your tickets to Sin City!
