Distributor 2016: The Weinstein Co.

lion-setRooney Mara and Dev Patel on the set of Garth Davis’ Lion

Lion looks like TWC’s big hopeful for now, while The Founder may be in the cards, too. Of course, both films may have problems on the circuit for one reason or another. Hands of Stone could be an acting play, while Harvey is sure to acquire some festival players. (And Sing Street could have made some moves, but TWC dumped it.)

Top Priorities (We’re Guessing)

  • The Founder (John Lee Hancock; Aug. 5, 2016)
  • Hands of Stone (Jonathan Jakubowicz; Aug. 26, 2016)
  • Lion (Garth Davis; Nov. 25, 2016 – limited)

Potential Players

  • Sing Street (John Carney; Apr. 15, 2016 – limited)

Other Releases

  • Jane Got a Gun (Gavin O’Connor; Jan. 26, 2016)
