It's a done deal!
Disney announced yesterday that they have sold Miramax Films to Filmyard Holdings LLC - and its partners Ron Tutor and Tom Barrack - for a whopping $660 million!
The deal should go through sometime between September and January of 2011.
Disney President and CEO Bob Iger says:
"Although we are very proud of Miramax's many accomplishments, our current strategy for Walt Disney Studios is to focus on the development of great motion pictures under the Disney, Pixar and Marvel brands. We are delighted that we have found a home for the Miramax brand and Miramax's very highly regarded motion picture library.”
And Ron Tutor elaborates:
“I am delighted and honored to acquire the Miramax library. On behalf of my partners Tom Barrack and Colony Capital, we look forward to sharing this high quality content with the world in every form of media for many years to come.”
Big switch up! We wonder what this will mean for Miramax and its current employees!
What do U think??
