The Weinstein Co.: Drills down on market

AFM Company Spotlight

The Weinsteins have mounted yet another comeback. Maybe they lost their bid to buy back the Miramax label, but TWC has come out of its debt-restructuring with the vengeance of a Quentin Tarantino heroine. At the Toronto Intl. Film Festival, they beat out several rivals to acquire three coveted films, “Dirty Girl,” “Submarine,” and “Sarah’s Key,” not to mention buzz pic “The King’s Speech.”

At AFM, the company will be focusing on international sales of “Scream 4,” the Sarah Jessica Parker vehicle “I Don’t Know How She Does It” and “Spy Kids 3-D.” Of the latter, TWC COO David Glasser says, “It’s an incredible opportunity for the independent (buyers), because this is a bigger studio-level picture.”

The company will also be unveiling titles on its 2012 slate, including adaptations of prestige properties “Osage County,” based on the play, and “The Alchemist,” from the bestselling novel.

AFM will also provide TWC a platform to shake off its critics and reassert itself as a viable company with long-term goals.

“One of the things that we’re trying to promote right now is to give a consistent picture of here are the next 24 months,” notes Glasser. “Harvey and Bob are best when they’re focused, and we’re absolutely headed in that direction.”
