Former TWC co-chairman Bob Weinstein has launched the production company Watch This Entertainment which will develop and produce two to three films per year.
The first will be “Endangered,” an animated family adventure film that Weinstein will produce with Tea Leoni who will lend her voice to one of the lead characters. French animation collective Illogic will direct and write the project inspired by the book written by wildlife photographer Tim Flach.
The company aims to create IP ownership for its titles which will focus primarily on family films, comedies and upscale adult thrillers. Former Dimension Films publicity VP Pantea Ghaderi will serve as President of Creative Development.
The news marks Bob Weinstein’s first move back into the movie business since the collapse of The Weinstein Company which followed on from the alleged sexual assault scandals involving his co-chairman brother Harvey.
