WSJ.com: Weinstein on Cannes
0

For the Wall Street Journal Online's opening Cannes dispatch, I interviewed Harvey Weinstein (via email) on the eve of the company's high-profile presence at this year's festival, with three pics -- tomorrow night's opener "My Blueberry Nights," Michael Moore's highly anticipated "Sicko" and Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof. Weinstein told me the company is keeping their "options open" to release the international Cannes version of "Death Proof" in U.S. theaters. He also appeared high on the company's international taste, but with a modesty more fitting of today's marketplace.

"Over the years, we have proven that films do not have boundaries," he said, citing such past successes as "Life is Beautiful," "Cinema Paradiso," "Amelie," "Il Postino" and "Hero." "While it certainly won't happen overnight, we truly believe that if we continue to work with leading international filmmakers, we can duplicate that success over the next few years."
