A party in ‘Cop’ land

There were plenty of New York’s finest to hold back the crowds at the premiere of Miramax Films’ “Cop Land,” held Aug. 6 at Gotham’s Ziegfeld Theater. Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein kicked off the evening by thanking William Morris Agency president Arnold Rifkin for convincing Sly Stallone to star in indie helmer James Mangold’s tale about a sheriff patrolling a small town full of crooked big-city cops.

But Weinstein took credit for bringing Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel into the pic by tailing them around the globe. But even the persuasive Weinstein couldn’t lure the reclusive De Niro — who is Miramax’s landlord in the Tribeca Film Center — to the preem and the party afterwards at the Supper Club.

Members of the “Cop Land” force in attendance included cast members Stallone, Keitel, Ray Liotta, Annabella Sciorra, Cathy Moriarty, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Rapaport, Malik Yoba, Deborah Harry, Mel Gorham, Arthur Nascarella and Frank Vincent. Also on hand were producers Cary Woods, Cathy Konrad and Ezra Swerdlow as well as Miramax co-chairman Bob Weinstein.

Gwyneth Paltrow came out of mourning to attend the preem with her friend Winona Ryder. Other guests included Claudia Cohen, Veronica Webb, Martha Plimpton, Marla Maples Trump, Rosie Perez, Christopher Walken, Raquel Welch, Julian Schnabel, Anthony Minghella, Sydney Pollack, Tom Brokaw and Jellybean Benitez.
