Miramax and The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced on December 16 a multi-year, multi-title film, television and live stage co-production and co-distribution partnership.

Content will come from library and original development projects sourced from the Miramax library.

TWC will distribute in the Us and Miramax will license international rights. The parties anticipate the first productions to start in early to mid-2014.

According to a joint press release, projects “could include derivative works of some of the most recognized titles in the Miramax library from Swingers to Shakespeare In Love in addition to new titles currently in development.”

The partnership includes development of TV series based on Miramax titles such as Good Will Hunting and Flirting With Disaster.
