Miramax To Manage Films From Samuel Goldwyn’s Library

2 April 2012 6:25 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

When Mike Lang was CEO of Miramax Films, he came to Cannes last year with big plans to move into production, and tap the library for remakes. It was an ambitious plan. Now, Lang surprisingly resigned and it’s not exactly clear what Miramax is going to be. We do know its core business is earning cash from managing the library built up by Bob and Harvey Weinstein that came in the Disney sale for over half a billion dollars. Now, Miramax has taken on the library of films that include Guys and Dolls, Wuthering Heights, The Best Years Of Our Lives and The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. Here’s the announcement: Santa Monica, CA, April 2, 2012 – Miramax and the Samuel Goldwyn Jr. Family Trust today announced that Miramax’s Global Sales team will manage global licensing of the library produced by the legendary Samuel \ Goldwyn. Terms of the agreement are not being disclosed. »
