Miramax closing offices

The New York and L.A. offices of Miramax movie studio are reportedly shuttering their doors this week. Disney Studios announced last year that it was significantly downsizing its indie division.

The company, formed by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein in 1979 and acquired by Disney in 1993, is responsible for critical and commercial hits like Pulp Fiction, Shakespeare in Love, Good Will Hunting, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and Chicago.

    Mirimax WAS the Weinsteins (for better or for worse). I’ve been expecting this ever since they left and formed their own company

  • TPK

    Can the Weinsteins buy the name back now?

    • Quirky

      Other movie sites are saying that Disney is willing to sell all of Miramax for 1.5 billion.

    Does this include Dimension too? I can’t remember what happened to it in the whole Disney/Weinstein Brothers debacle.

  • LOL

    Thanks Obama ! Good job on making jobs.

      For God’s sake, will the anti-Obama crowd please calm down. You sound hysterical and ridiculous. If he’s responsible for Miramax folding, why isn’t he also responsible for AVATAR, and all the jobs and revenue that’ll generate over the next decade? Because neither argument makes any sense. Grow up.

    Sad to see a great studio close. Thanks for the movies, and the courage to distribute them.

    You will be missed.

      Well at least there is some good news from today ( even though it still sucks he is rertiing in 15 years ). I have been waiting ever since Kill Bill Vol. 2 came out to see both volumes combined and it looks like by the end of the year I will finally get the chance.
