Oct 9, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Following the firing of Harvey Weinstein amid lurid allegations of decades of sexual abuses by the co-founder and co-chairman of The Weinstein Co., the AP reports that the company will change its name.

The report quotes an unnamed source who’s familiar with the decision saying that the name change is expected to take a while, but “it will happen.”

“The Weinstein Co. is also moving to pull Weinstein’s name from the credits of several upcoming television series, including ‘Waco’ and ‘Yellowstone,'” the AP reports, noting: “Weinstein and his brother, Bob, co-founded The Weinstein Co. in 2005. The brothers previously founded the film company Miramax, which was named after their parents, Miriam and Max.”
