Weinsteins on Asia kick

Logan will o'see acquisitions activities, co-prod'n deals

HONG KONG — Colorful kung-fu specialist Bey Logan has been hired as the Weinstein Co.’s new rep in Asia.

As VP of acquisitions and co-productions, he will oversee Asian acquisitions activities and negotiate co-production deals for firstrun and library titles throughout Asia.

He’ll also oversee the temporarily named Weinstein Co.’s forthcoming Asian productions.

Company prez Harvey Weinstein says, “Bey Logan’s reputation and business contacts throughout Asia make him a fantastic resource and an integral part of the growth of our new company both domestically and throughout Asia.”

Other members of the Weinstein Co.’s acquisitions team will soon be announced.

Since coming to Hong Kong in the early 1990s, Blighty-born Logan has been involved with companies including Media Asia, Emperor Multimedia Group and Visualizer Films.

He scripted pics including “The Medallion” and “Gen-X Cops” and has produced “Jackie Chan: My Story,” “The Twins Effect” and the recently wrapped “Dragon Squad,” which stars Sammo Hung and Michael Biehn.

Logan was most recently Hong Kong rep for Australian foreign sales outfit Arclight Films.

Since their separation agreement from Miramax’s parent Disney, the Weinsteins have picked up Asian titles including Thai actioner “Tom Yum Goong” and Chen Kaige’s “The Promise,” which was jointly acquired with Chinese financier IDG New Media Fund.

Weinstein adds, “My brother and I have always been huge fans of Asian and martial arts films. We’re very excited about the extraordinary growth in popularity, awareness and box office performance of Asian films both in the U.S. and around the world. With Glen Basner, president of international, also on our team, we feel confident in our ability to excel movies in the international market place.”
