Going Down With the S.S. Miramax
Harvey to employees: You stay as long as I stay.
As Bob and Harvey Weinstein surrender their Tribeca-moored battleship Miramax to Disney, the remaining members of their dwindling crew (which was close to 500 last fall and is now less than half that, owing to cost-cutting firings and attrition) have been, logically enough, looking for work. Such prominent Miramaxers as the head of its book division, Jonathan Burnham, and its head of events, Dina Wise, have already bolted. But a Miramax source says that those who haven’t finished out their contracts yet are being forced to go down with the ship. Looking forward to the September 30 end date of the Weinsteins’ Disney employment, employees have been asking to get out of their contracts as they get job offers, but “Harvey’s being really petty. There’s really nothing left, but they won’t let people out early.”
