WEINSTEINS START VOD LABEL
A few weeks ago we learned about Focus Features’ new VOD arm, Focus World, well today Deadline broke the story that at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (which begins Thursday) The Weinstein Company will go full steam ahead on their own VOD label.
The Weinstein Company has also confirmed that Magnolia Pictures’ SVP and Head of Acquisitions, Tom Quinn, will come over to head the label along with Magnolia’s head of legal and business affairs, Jason Janego. The two had been instrumental in Magnolia’s day-and-date platform.
Quinn and Janego will be at TIFF scouting titles for the Weinsteins’ as of yet unnamed VOD label. According to a release, the first title should be released in the first half of 2012.
Be on the lookout for the titles in our VOD Calendar once they are announced.
