Miramax was founded in 1979 by Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein. The company produced and distributed films until 2016 when it was acquired by Disney. The acquisition led to a change in attitude at the company, with some employees struggling to keep up with Disney’s standards of quality and creativity.
Weinstein had a history of sexual harassment allegations that have forced him to step down from his roles at Miramax. Furthermore, he has been accused of making unwanted advances toward women for years before he met his wife. Weinstein has resigned from his role as Chairman of Miramaxfilm and will no longer be involved with any production projects.
