Responding to reports that Bob and Harvey Weinstein would like to buy back the name of their former company Miramax, the brothers confirmed in a statement to EW: “We founded Miramax 29 years ago, naming it after our parents Miriam and Max. If there is ever an opportunity to make a deal to buy it back, we would certainly take it and there isn’t much in the world that would make our 83-year-old mother happier.” The Weinsteins left the name behind in 2005 when they split from Disney-owned Miramax to start The Weinstein Company. Disney has recently dramatically downsized Miramax.
