Miramax To Slowly Die Away

The Wrap is reporting that Miramax has run its course and was finally buried today. While that is sad, it is good to know that they will still be operating in a much smaller fashion under Walt Disney Studios. Some of the Miramax notables include Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Chicago, Sling Blade, Good Will Hunting, The English Patient, Clerks, and many more. That is an outstanding stable of films, but it appears the gambles that didn’t pay off had sunk the company to the point of no return. However, many still think that the brand will live on in some fashion, but who knows when they will return to their former glory, if ever. Even the Weinsteins wanted to buy the name, but couldn’t afford the $1.5 billion pricetag that came with the company outright.

  1. How sad. I love Miramax. I think Weinstein would treat it better than Disney, but I suppose time will tell.

    Going to watch Pulp Fiction now.

  2. Well, the Weinsteins did leave the company to form their own, and haven’t exactly been doing great lately. They have continually delayed films and shuffled release dates in increasingly confusing fashion. However, their goal is commendable and the films they have are often very good.
