Inside Move: Dimension’s getting a little leaner

Co-prexys, exec veep bid adieu to brothers

Bob and Harvey Weinstein may be taking the Dimension Films name with them, but the people who run Dimension day to day have other scenarios in mind.

Co-presidents Brad Weston and Andrew Rona, along with executive VP business and legal affairs Andrew Gumpert, have informed Bob Weinstein that they don’t intend to be part of the brothers’ new company, sources say.

There could be a contingency in that the Weinsteins can’t yet make formal employment offers for their unnamed new outfit until the brothers exit their Disney deal, probably next week.

That could be too late. Weston has already had informal conversations at Paramount Pictures, which could reflect the Dimension mindset. Or he and Rona could land at DreamWorks, where former Miramax chairman Rick Sands is now president.

In any case, the Dimension team’s declaration comes at an inopportune moment. Dimension is slated to release at least 10 more films this year, some of them hotly anticipated (“The Amityville Horror,” “Wolf Creek,” “Sin City”) and others dusty from their stints on the back of the shelf (“Alien Love Triangle,” “Mindhunters”).
