Dear God, No: The Weinstein Company Planning Sequels to Shakespeare In Love and Rounders and TV Series Based on Other Miramax Titles

Miramax is dead, but founders Bob and Harvey Weinstein are planning to play with its corpse. According to Deadline, The Weinstein Company has struck a deal that will allow them to raid Miramax's library and develop sequels and series based on old hits. The standouts of their plan include sequels to Shakespeare in Love and Rounders and TV series based on Good Will Hunting and Flirting with Disaster. There will also be a few in-development stories that TWC is transferring to their own development slate. Notably, they'll be handling The Alibi, a comedy written by Stephen Colbert that's about creating alibis for cheating spouses. There's also The Ninth Life of Louis Drax, "a script that was being developed by the late Anthony Minghella and Sydney Pollack," based on the novel of the same name by Liz Jensen. Hit the jump for more on what the Weinsteins have planned for their older titles.
