Weinsteins rolling dice on the Stones

Co. also takes distrib rights to 'Nomad'

Bob and Harvey Weinstein are getting back to their roots… way back, in fact, to their pre-Miramax days as concert promoters.

Through the WeinsteinCo., the duo has inked a deal to present the Rolling Stones at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Sept. 15.

Deal is in partnership with Concert Prods. Int’l and Clear Channel Ent. The brothers’ former concert producing partner Michael Cohl is running the Stones’ tour, which was announced this month.

The band will kick off the yearlong On Stage world tour Aug. 21 at Fenway Park in Boston. Tour will hit 35 cities in North America before moving on to Puerto Rico, South America and Asia in February. After a month long rest in May, band will wrap up tour in Europe in summer 2006.

Tour name stems from the stage design, which will enable some 400 aud members onstage.

Weinsteins haven’t promoted a concert for the public for 20 years. Harvey Weinstein previously owned a shingle with Horace “Corky” Burger — called Harvey & Corky Presents — where Brad Grey got his start. That banner launched in 1972 with a Stephen Stills show.

He also owned a rock club in Buffalo, N.Y., called Stage One.

More recently, Harvey Weinstein promoted private, star-studded fundraising concerts for the victims of 9/11, as well as Al Gore and John Kerry in Gotham.

Back at the cinema, WeinsteinCo. has picked up North American, U.K., Australia/New Zealand, and South African distribution rights to the feature “Nomad” from French banner Wild Bunch.

Pic was financed by Kazakhfilm National Studio and written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Rustam Ibragimbekou (“East-West”).

Produced by Pavel Douvidzon, Ram Bergman, Rustan Ibragimbekov and Milos Forman, pic is set in 18th-century Kazakhstan and follows the story of a boy who is destined to one day unite three warring tribes that have fought for centuries.

Sergey Azimov and Serik Zhybandikov will serve as exec producers, and Sergey Bodrov and Talgat Temenov are helming.

Jason Scott Lee, Kuno Backer and Jay Hernandez star.

Wild Bunch is handling worldwide sales.
