Over the next three months Miramax will release ten movies that, like the proverbial red-headed stepchildren, got lost in the shuffle of the Weinstein's divorce from Disney. This is a bold strategy especially coming in the midst of summer blockbuster season. Indeed it's noted that Underclassman from director Marcos Siega, will go head to head with The Dukes of Hazzard. Who wants to bet Jessica Simpson's short shorts win that matchup? These are completed movies that are being dumped, presumably so they might be considered come awards time. Movies currently in production under the oversight of the Brothers Weinstein will be released by their new production company.
