We­in­stein boys taken to court

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - dclarke@irish­times.com

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.”
