TwitterFacebook

Bob Weinstein—brother of Harvey and cofounder of Miramax and its successor, The Weinstein Company—has faced lots of questions over the past week. 

His priority: Figuring out the future of the Weinstein Company. And everyone else’s: How much did Bob know, really? 

The younger Weinstein responded to both questions in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Saturday.
