Harvey Weinstein and the New York Times Go To War?

Robert Johnson: The Casting Couch (2016)




Weinstein offered this statement to THR: "The story sounds so good, I want to buy the movie rights."



We are not exactly sure what the allegations the NYTs is raising, but we can reasonably guess from Harvey's legal team it involves something salacious. Is anyone making popcorn?

Back at the Stanhope, Weinstein is finishing up breakfast. He’s obviously pleased with the changes he says he’s been able to make in his behavior. Indeed, as he’s fond of pointing out, it’s been over two years since his last public explosion, a March 4, 2002, incident that was recounted in Peter Biskind’s book Down and Dirty Pictures. The occasion was a test screening of Julie Taymor’s film Frida at the Lincoln Square Theater at 68th and Broadway. The film tested well. Standing in the lobby after the audience had filed out, Weinstein asked Taymor what she thought of the audience’s response. “They enjoyed the movie,” Taymor said. “The film succeeded.” 
This, apparently, was not the response Weinstein was looking for. “You are the most arrogant person I have ever met!” Weinstein screamed, spittle flying out of his mouth. “Go market the fucking film yourself!” Weinstein turned to Taymor’s agent, Bart Walker, and told him to “get the fuck out of here.” He then turned to Taymor’s companion, Elliott Goldenthal. “I don’t like the look on your face. Why don’t you defend your wife, so I can beat the shit out of you.” Finally, he turned to a group of Miramax executives and picked them off, one by one. “You’re fired. You’re fired. You’re fired. You’re fired.” 
Incidents like that, Weinstein insists, are all in the past, simply the result of spiked glucose levels and poor nutrition.

  1. "Golden Globes After Party" Are you referring the the Golden Globes AfterParty, or, in the picture, the Golden Globes, After Party?
