Bob and Harvey Weinstein have made quite a career for themselves in the movie industry. Back in '79 they founded Miramax films, then in 1993 gave birth to genre imprint Dimension. 2005 saw them launch their new label, The Weinstein Company. Having pretty much done everything they can in the movie biz, the brothers today announced their newest venture: a move into the videogame arena.
Their new company is TWC Games, a "label that will utilize The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films' strong and recognizable properties, and work with external partners to develop and publish video games for mobile, social, and console platforms."
Games based on movies (and vice versa) are rarely good, but the Weinstein library does feature a few interesting properties that could make compelling games. Who wouldn't want to play a game based on the Colin Firth drama 'A Single Man?' What about an action shooter based on 'The King's Speech?' Take that, stuttering! Those ideas are brimming with potential.
Joking aside, we spent the afternoon combing through the Weinstein library and came up with a few properties that actually could make decent videogames. Hit the jump for our choices.
