The Weinstein Company Knew About Harvey's Settlements With Victims For YEARS!

twc knew about harvey weinstein settlements

We kinda assumed this was the case…

It appears The Weinstein Company was well aware of Harvey Weinstein's predatory ways as the independent film studio was alerted of a number of sexual harassment-related cash settlements during the disgraced producer's contract negotiations.

For shame, TWC!!

According to The New York Times, back in 2015, the company was informed of at least three or four settlements. David Boies, the lawyer who represented Harvey during this time, confirmed to the paper that TWC knew about several payouts. This directly contradicts what Harvey's brother Bob Weinstein and company chief David Glasser told staffers in a meeting on Tuesday.

Board member Lance Maerov admits he did know of settlements as he handled the contract talks; however, Maerov says he assumed these were cash payouts to keep consensual affairs under wraps. Hmm.

Maerov also assured the Times he only approved of the contract once he was assured that no company money was used in the settlements AND that there were no pending complaints against Weinstein (at the time). Unsurprisingly, Bob and Glasser declined to comment on the update.

Looks like the TWC board members have some 'splainin' to do…

Meryl Streep And Julia Roberts Still Set To Win Every Oscar In 2013 Star In August: Osage County!

meryl and julia to star in august osage county

We're glad to see this is finally going to happen! Been a looooong time coming!

Way back in October 2010, we heard that Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts were in talks to star in a film version of Pulitzer/Tony-award winning play August: Osage County!

For those who haven't seen the play, it revolves around a grieving mother and daughter who mercilessly argue with each other, following the death of the family's patriarch.

Now, Weinstein Company executive David Glasser is saying that the film may start shooting THIS September, in hopes of wrapping production by the end of 2012!

If all goes according to plan, the film will be in Oscar contention during the 2013 awards season…and we have a feeling it'll DESTROY the competition!

What do U think? Are U excited to finally see an August: Osage County film? Do U think Meryl and Julia are right for the roles???
