News from Asia by Paul S.

Paul gave us this neat little tidbit on what The Weinstein Company is up too.

Weinsteins Investing In Asian Films

Setting their sights on Asia, Bob and Harvey Weinstein are setting up
a $285 million fund, with the help of Goldman Sachs, to invest in
movies with Asian themes and elements.

Including -

"a remake of the Hong Kong martial arts movie "Come Drink With Me,"
directed by Quentin Tarantino."

Fans might also remember that TWC acquired the movie and stage rights
to the entire Crane Iron Pentalogy by Wang Dulu. Crouching Tiger
Hidden Dragon rights were also included in that deal which started a
legal battle with Sony/Columbia/Tristar who claimed they had secured
the rights previously.
