The Weinsteins founded Miramax in 1979 and sold it to Disney in 1993 for $80 million. The brothers continued to operate Miramax until 2005 when they left and founded The Weinstein Co.
Disney reportedly has been considering offers to sell the specialty-film unit and its 611-title library, which includes modern classics such as "Pulp Fiction," "The English Patient" and "Shakepeare in Love."
Although no deal has been finalized, The Hollywood Reporter said the filmmaking brothers have been working to put together an offer of about $600 million to get Miramax back from Disney.
