More trouble on the horizon for disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. With his former company up for bid for a hefty price, estimated to exceed $300 million, Quentin Tarantino, along with others, filed court papers yesterday in Delaware saying they are still owed money from the company, and that this should be resolved before any sale is finalized.
A statement from Tarantino’s lawyers:
“By and through the Sale Motion and the Notice of Assumption, the Debtors assert that there are no defaults to cure in order to assume the Agreements. However, there are numerous uncured monetary and non-monetary defaults under the Agreements that must be cured as a condition to any assumption or assignment of the Agreements.”
Tarantino and The Weinstein Company have long been collaborators. The director is seeking compensation for Grindhouse, Inglorious Bastards, Django Unchained and Hateful Eight to the tune of $4.62 million. Leonardo DiCaprio is also involved with issues stemming from Django Unchained. This is just the latest phase in the downward spiral for Weinstein, who as most of you know was accused by multiple actresses for sexual misconduct last year.
I can’t wait for the documentary or TV movie that will chronicle the fall of Harvey Weinstein.
