The Weinstein Company Might Be Sold After All — To A Company Owned By A Trump Confidante!

no title

Last week, The Weinstein Company assured investors it was NOT shutting down after being hit by the explosive sexual assault scandal of co-founder Harvey Weinstein.

Well, it looks like it might be curtains for the company after all!

On Monday, it was announced that not only will Colony Capital invest in TWC, but TWC is also negotiating with Colony about the possible sale of "all or a significant portion" of its assets.

In a statement, TWC board member Tarak Ben Ammar said the film production house believes Colony's "sponsorship" will "help stabilize the Company's current operations."

Interestingly enough, the private equity real estate trust is headed by billionaire Tom Barrack, who is also known for being one of Donald Trump's closest friends.

Barrack, who headed Trump's inaugural committee, said the film studio has "substantial value and growth potential," adding:

Kanye West Isn't 'Traditionally American' Enough For Donald Trump's Inauguration!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikKanye WestDonald TrumpShade

Ha!!!

Donald Trump has been desperate to get any A-list celebs at his inauguration, but there's one star that he wants to stay far away from Friday's ceremony — Kanye West!

Earlier this week, a spokesperson for the President-elect's inauguration committee told CNN the rapper was NOT invited to perform at the inauguration because his music just wasn't "traditionally American" enough.

We can't help but feel like there's some subtle racial subtext in that phrase… hmm, if only we could parse it out…

Donald Trump Tries To Hide The Lack Of A-Listers At His Inauguration By Promising 'Soft Sensuality' Instead — And Twitter Can't Stop Laughing!

Um. What?

Donald Trump is clearly very insecure about the fact that he can't seem to land an A-list performer for his inauguration — even Moby won't do it — and is now trying to change his tune.

After a desperate and failed search for a celeb performer, the racist Republican's team even began pretending he never actually wanted a star-studded bash!

As if that wasn't transparent enough, inauguration planner Tom Barrack's word choice while addressing pool reporters on Tuesday didn't help the situation.

He said:

"So what we've done instead of trying to surround him with what people consider A-listers is we are going to surround him with the soft sensuality of the place. It's a much more poetic cadence than having a circus-like celebration that's a coronation. That's the way this president-elect wanted it."

Translation: No one wanted to throw Donald Trump a big party, so now he's trying to convince everyone he never wanted one in the first place.

Also, what the f*ck does he mean by "soft sensuality"?! It's a swearing in ceremony. It's literally the day the 70-year-old becomes President of the United States.

What on earth is SENSUAL about that?!

Well, we aren't the only ones confused by the inneresting description! The Twitterverse had a f*cking field day!

Ch-ch-check out some of the best reactions (below)!

Rob Lowe's Big Career Shift! Will He Succeed At Being A Studio Exec??

roblowejuly1e__opt.jpg

This is a huge transition for him! We wonder how he'll fare!

As we've reported, Rob Lowe is branching off from him usual acting ventures to become a "creative partner" at the recently sold Miramax Films!

Lowe says in a statement:

"The acquisition of a classic brand like Miramax is an exciting first step in my partnership with Tom Barrack and Colony Capital. This represents an exciting new chapter for me."

Last week, Disney finalized the deal to sell the company to Tom Barrack and Ronald Tutor of Filmyard Holding, and many have been wondering how the former Brat Pack and Brothers & Sisters star would fit into the equation, and if he has a place with the studio bigwigs!

Producer Nathan Folks seems to think so, and says:

“As a long-time actor, Lowe knows what is crucial in making the difference between a film being ‘superb’ versus just ‘good.' Thus, an actor develops great insight from being where ‘the rubber hits the road’ because he takes into account the production and direction culminated over the years into a final product. Rob will make a great asset to Miramax.”

Matt Atchity of RottenTomatoes.com agrees:

“In the beginning, it’s going to be a lot of introductions with the people he’s working with and the people he knows, trying to get projects started. It’ll be along the lines of introducing writers and producers he knows to directors he knows and vice versa, and just getting people in rooms together and brainstorming."

“He might be reading scripts, or he might be going down to sets. It doesn’t sound like he will be giving up acting so I can’t imagine he will be a steady fixture on sets, but by the same token, he has worked for over 30 years in the industry and he has experience as a successful actor and knows what’s going on, on both television and movie sets. He easily could be down on the set to make sure things are happening correctly.”

Inneresting!

What do U think?? Is Rob's experience as an actor going to help him or is he completely out of his league??

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??

robgo.jpg

Looks like Rob Lowe's time away from the big screen has lead him in to some new endeavors. And we're not talking about his memoir hes been writing.

Feast your eyes one on the new owners of Miramax Films, so long as the deal gets closed today.

Sources report that Lowe and Tom Barrack have teamed up with Flavio Briatore and Giuseppe Cipriani (owner Cipriani's restaurant) to create "a multi-platform media company, similar to DreamWorks."

We wonder what movies this joke of a dream team will come up with??
