Winterstern’s Biggest Problem–The Dead Girl or the Live Hooker?

hwinterstern-tm.jpg

Sharon Waxman writes a compelling story about the rise and fall of Henry Winterstern and First Look Studios. Large amounts of hedge-fund cash and snazzy offices didn’t help much when bad movies didn’t make any money box office money–The Dead Girl‘s $19,000, Wassup Rockers’ $620,000. So, Winterstern resigned.

Rumors are flying about the three costly sexual harassment suits that have been brought against him and the screaming fight with his wife in the commissary that might have something to do with his girlfriend who went to Sundance and the hooker he flew in to join them.

Jeffrey Wells sees him as a modern-day Bugsy Segal.

And bad as this all is–what about Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The Movie?
