In a solution to the current flap over distribution of Michael Moore's politically-charged doc
Fahrenheit 911, Miramax co-chairmen Harvey and Bob Weinstein have personally
bought all worldwide rights to the film from Miramax's parent company Disney. The brothers formed
The Fellowship Adventure Group, called a new "special-purpose company" in the press release.
The brothers have paid for all costs related to the production of the film and will incur all costs that will come from finishing and marketing the film that are not covered by the eventual distributor of the film. The brothers have all worldwide rights including home entertainment and will "secure distribution through third parties or may distribute the movie personally in certain markets," according to the release.
Paris-based sales agent Wild Bunch will continue to handle international sales, with several deals already in place, according to the release.
