Billionaire investor Mark Cuban said Saturday he "loved" the idea of the Weinstein brothers participating in a bid for Miramax, adding that he didn't help block their bid to take back the label from The Walt Disney Co.
Cuban said wouldn't be worried about the Weinsteins splitting their time between two movie studios.
Harvey and Bob Weinstein founded Miramax, naming it after their parents, Miriam and Max, in 1979. They sold it to Disney for $80 million in 1993. Talks by the Weinsteins to take back control of Miramax were called off late last month amid concern at The Weinstein Co. about how it would benefit from the arrangement and how the brothers would spend their time managing two studios.
