Nobody really thought Bob and Harvey Weinstein leaving Miramax would leave them high and dry. Apparently, we were all right.
In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, The Weinstein Co. recently closed it's deal to become 70% owners of Genius Products. They are wasting no time in establishing their dominance in the home video marketplace.
Their plan is to put out "250-300 DVDs next year, including about 30 theatrical features, 24 from The Weinstein Company and six from Bauer Martinez."
In addition to this, the company also plans to release 30 titles from IFC. According to CEO Trevor Drinkwater, "We want to become a mini-major."
