Weinstein Co. seals deal for Miramax trio

NEW YORK — Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s temporarily named Weinstein Co. continued to shore up its exec slate Wednesday with three Miramax veterans coming aboard at the exec veep level, including Colin Vaines, Tim Clawson and Irwin Reiter.

Vaines and Clawson take on the same positions they held at Miramax, as exec veep, European production and development, and exec veep, physical and post-production, respectively. Reiter, a 16-year employee of Miramax, will be exec veep, accounting and financial reporting.

Trio will work for both Miramax and Weinstein Co. until Oct. 1, when the Weinsteins make their official exit from Disney-owned Miramax.

Vaines, who started with Miramax in 1999 and began to supervise European production in 2002, is based in London and will report directly to Harvey Weinstein. He is currently overseeing Anthony Minghella’s “Breaking and Entering” for Weinstein Co., and has worked on Miramax films such as “Gangs of New York” and “Cold Mountain.”

Clawson, working out of Los Angeles, will report to both Harvey and Bob Weinstein and their yet-to-be-named production heads. He joined Miramax in 2002 and has overseen physical production on television and film projects such as “Kill Bill,” “Scary Movie 3,” “Finding Neverland” and the upcoming “The Brothers Grimm” for Miramax and Dimension Films. Previously, Clawson was prexy of Shooting Gallery Prods.

Reiter, reporting to Bob and Harvey Weinstein in Gotham, helped broker the original acquisition deal that brought Miramax into the Disney fold in 1993, and was an instrumental member of the team that recently secured financing from Goldman Sachs for the Weinsteins’ new venture.
