The Weinstein Company of 2018 onwards is going to look very different to what came before with The Wrap reporting that the company is being reinvented to create a safer and more inclusive workspace for women.
Maria Contreras-Sweet, the former Small Business Administrator under President Obama, is reportedly in talks to purchase the debt-ridden indie distributor with a group of investors for around $500 million. Under Contreras-Sweet, the company would be led by a majority-female board of directors and team of investors.
The new look company will create an office workspace in a new residence in Larchmont Village that will accommodate women. It is said to offer private breastfeeding rooms to new moms, cater three free meals a day, and emphasize an open workspace.
Additionally, the prospective new owner is interviewing numerous powerful Hollywood women for the board of directors. The company is also reportedly in the process of changing its name with suggestions like Wonder Hill and Creative Trade Studios under consideration.
