One thing the Weinstein Co. does have is four hopefuls — “Nine,” “The Road,” “Inglourious Basterds” and “Simple Man.” And if anyone will go for it this constrained awards season, Bob Berney predicted, it will be Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein execs, meanwhile, compare the company’s prospects — and Harvey’s focus on it — to the Miramax days. We’ll see what happens when push comes to shove.
