Weinstein boys taken to court
The heavyweight (in so many senses) bust-up between film-maker Michael Moore and Bob and Harvey Weinstein rumbles on.
As reported here a few months ago, Moore has filed suit against the legendary producers for alleged non-payment of $2.7 million (¤1.9 million) revenue from his hit documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Having failed to settle, Moore and the Weinsteins are now headed for court.
Moore has been reasonably conciliatory toward the brothers themselves.
“Harvey and I have a lot of important history together – brothers in arms,” he said. “And he and Bob have been nothing but a force for good indie film-makers. I hold no ill will, and for now am just blaming all of this on his accountants and business affairs people.
“If I had to bet, I’m guessing they never even showed [Harvey] the independent auditor’s report.”
