Weinsteins to Remake Oscar Winning "Lives of Others"
First Caché, now this? Have they no shame? Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella should know better.
The Weinstein Co. has renewed its exclusive first-look deal with Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella's Mirage banner for another three years.
The new pact, announced Wednesday, also includes English-language remake rights to Oscar-winning pic "The Lives of Others." The German take on the East Berlin secret police bowled over critics and notched a semi-surprise win Sunday in the foreign-language race. Three weeks into its limited run, the Sony Classics release has grossed $1.3 million.
