Last we shared, it looked like Rob Lowe wanted in on the seemingly never-ending series of negotiations for Miramax. But last week, the studio found itself flipping into another twist as reports revealed that executive Ron Tutor (along with Colony Capital) was closing in on the company, with a price tag that might just hit $700 million. This, in turn, angered Harvey Weinstein, a friend of CC president Tom Barrack.
With such a big price tag, you'd think Tutor must have had a change of heart about the movie industry after the fall-out with ex-partner David Bergstein ... but not quite. It seems this is purely about the money. Tutor could care less about cinema.
