Harvey Weinstein has revealed he wanted actress Keira Knightley to be the face of his production company, The Weinstein Company.
The prolific Hollywood producer, who runs The Weinstein Company with his brother Bob, admits his notorious reputation often precedes him and so he was eager to have the fresh-faced actress be the face of TWC instead of him.
He explained: ''For whatever reason, somehow, we've done controversial movies and you end up being the face of your company. We desperate tried to get Keira Knightley to be the face of our company, but so did Chanel, and they paid better.''

In the lawsuit, Harvey and Bob Weinstein are demanding at least $75 million from the trilogy's gross revenue.
The Hobbit trilogy, which has been a highly profitable venture for New Line Cinema, is also causing some problems for the studio – namely a lawsuit from Harvey and Bob Weinstein. The two brothers own Miramax, the company, which sold New Line (part of Warner) the film rights to Tolkien’s story in 1998.

However, since New Line announced plans to make just one film, the Winesteins were only paid for the fist movie. According to them, the studio made the book into three separate film “solely to deprive plaintiffs” of agreed revenue.
The streaming company are changing the way content is viewed
Netflix have made yet another bold move – this time with movies – to try and secure monthly payments of £5.99 from content-happy consumers. They’ve put pen to paper with The Weinstein company, securing the rights to stream all of their movies from 2016.
This basically means two things: every film Weinstein releases will end up on Netflix once the movie has a physical release – i.e. DVD – and everything written about Netflix in the next few years will read like paid-for copy. They really are tying up the market.
"The deal that we've just completed with Netflix is probably the biggest deal in the history of the Weinstein Co.," co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. "Together, we are discussing ways to reinvent the pay-TV experience so that the audience can get even more for their money."

The estranged wife of Bob Weinstein's request for a restraining order against the movie mogul has been denied by a New York judge.
Anne Weinstein moved to end her 12-year marriage on Friday (06Apr12) and filed court papers seeking to ban the film executive from contacting her, claiming she feared "bodily harm".
A representative for The Weinstein Company boss has since dismissed the allegations of abuse, insisting the former book editor was acting irrationally following a family intervention to put a stop to her reported alcohol addiction.
And on Monday (09Apr12) Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Ellen Gesmer ruled in favour of The Lord of the Rings producer and rejected Anne's bid for a protection order. Gesmer also imposed a gag order on the pair for the remainder of the divorce case, according to the New York Daily News.

Director Wes Craven thinks there is a good chance of a 'Scream 5' movie being created because executive producer Bob Weinstein ''wants to'' make the film.
Wes Craven thinks the "odds" are in favour of 'Scream 5' being made.
The director - who helmed the previous four horror movies in the franchise - would consider taking charge of a fifth film, which he thinks is more than likely to be created because executive producer Bob Weinstein "wants to" make it.
He said: "The odds are that there will be [a 'Scream 5']. It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclined to think that there will be [another sequel]. Whether I will be a part of it or not? I don't know.

Reader reunites Daldry with his The Hours screenwriter, David Hare, and the two collaborate on another aloof, literary period picture. The action transitions between 1995 and 1958, when 15-year-old Michael Berg (David Kross) first comes under the spell of Hanna Schmitz (Kate Winslet), the stern but attentive woman who paid him a bit of kindness after the boy was felled by Scarlet Fever.

Bob Weinstein and Mel Brooks - Bob Weinstein and guest New York City, USA - Opening Night of the new Mel Brooks musical 'Young Frankenstein' at the Hilton Theatre - Arrivals Thursday 8th November 2007
Renowned travel writer Mike Enslin (John Cusack), like most characters in King's ouvere, is haunted by his own demons. Hiding behind alcohol and a refined cynicism, Enslin scours the country for legitimate haunted habitats, rating rooms on a "shiver scale." A bed-and-breakfast with good food but moderate mood gets five skulls, in his opinion. This movie, based on Enslin's most terrifying encounter, would receive a solid eight skulls.

The facts are these: In 1945, as the American army is pushing back the Japanese in the Philippines, Tokyo has issued an order to exterminate every prisoner of war, an order enthusiastically carried out in the beginning of the film, which recreates an episode in which 150 U.S. POWs were covered in gasoline and set on fire. The Americans know that as they advance, the Japanese will do the same thing at every camp they get close to, and that the American Sixth Army is only days away from the camp at Cabanatuan, with over 500 prisoners - a starving and miserable bunch who survived the Bataan Death March and three years of privation only to face murder just as their fellow soldiers approach. So a team of 121 soldiers, mostly inexperienced Rangers, are ordered to sneak 30 miles behind Japanese lines and liberate Cabanatuan. It's a jury-rigged, rag-tag sort of mission, with the soldiers knowing it's a suicide detail, but also knowing they couldn't stand not to try.

Profits from Michael Moore's controversial film FAHRENHEIT 9/11 will be donated to several charities.
The Weinstein Brothers fell-out with parent company Disney, who initially forbade the release of the PALME D'OR-winning movie in May (04), but finally agreed to sell the film if the siblings earned no more than 40 per cent of the net profit - while the remaining 60 per cent will go to charities of Disney's choice.
