Weinstein To Sign WGA Deal

The WGA is making side deals left and right. Biggie Harvey Weinstein says he’s getting a contract similiar to the one Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner wrangled for UA. And not a moment too soon:

One project that will immediately benefit from the independent deal is “Nine,” a planned film from Rob Marshall, who directed “Chicago.” Anthony Minghella, who has worked with Mr. Weinstein on films like “The English Patient” and “Cold Mountain,” is expected to begin working on revisions of a script that was written by Michael Tolkin, Mr. Weinstein said.
