There was a rumble a while back about Weinstein Co. theatrical chief Tom Ortenberg leaving the company, but it was flatly denied so I let it go. Yesterday his resignation (for “personal reasons”) was officially announced, on top of news that the company had cut loose another 35 employees on Wednesday. Ortenberg, a good guy, will be announcing a new business endeavor in two or three weeks, I’m told. Here’s a Wall Street Journal assessment of upcoming Weinstein Co. releases. Bottom line: Nine‘s gotta do it or else.
