The Weinstein Co. is no more. Last week, the production studio finalized its deal to sell to Lantern Entertainment
, handing over the keys to its indie kingdom, including a slate of unreleased films and a handful of employees.
But following more than 30 years worth of accusations of sexual harassment and assault against former boss Harvey Weinstein
, from a multitude of women, the company swiftly atrophied into a shell of its former self.

and its assets out of bankruptcy. It walked away with three unreleased films after haggling with filmmakers and producers over the rights to some of the projects, and a whole lot more.
