Weinsteins sign WGA Deal

14th January 2008 by Maura McHugh

The WGA and the Weinstein Company have signed an interim deal that allows writers to go back to work and into development with The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films, the genre division under the TWC banner.

David Young, executive director of the Writers Guild of America, West and WGA chief negotiator, said: “The Guild is proud to move forward with The Weinstein Company and hopes that other studios will follow its example. The conglomerates walked away from bargaining and have refused to resume negotiations, but this shows we can sign deals that are fair for writers and the companies that employ them.”

The terms of the agreement are similar to the Guild’s recent deals with Worldwide Pants and United Artists.
