Weinsteins Plan Film Version of Pippin With Rob Marshall
"We do what we love," Harvey Weinstein told journalist Lynn Hirschberg at The New York Times "Sunday With The Magazine" event this past weekend. "We never ask how a film can be marketed. Do we like it? There are no other factors. I am a fan of musicals."
Marshall directed the 2002 movie version of Chicago for the Weinsteins. The film won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and Marshall was nominated for Best Director. Most recently, Marshall directed the film Memoirs of a Geisha. He is also a six-time Tony Award nominee for choreography and direction of such shows as Cabaret, She Loves Me, and Little Me.
