Miramax was the classic American success story: A pair of brothers start a tiny, independent film company from scratch, turn it into an industry powerhouse and end up selling it to a major studio for a huge profit. But for the Weinsteins, their dream turned sour when that studio, Disney, forced them out before finally shutting down Miramax for good earlier this year and putting the remnants up on the auction block.

Now it appears the Weinsteins are about to live out another archetypal American tale: the comeback.

Yes, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Bob and Harvey Weinstein appear poised to reacquire Miramax from Disney nearly 17 years after they originally sold the company for $80 million.
