Miramax is a global film and television studio best known for its highly acclaimed, original content. The studio's new development projects include both film and TV, with the production of The 9th Life of Louis Drax, starring Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Fall), most recently announced. Together with Sony's Screen Gems, Miramax will also release Jeremy Garelick's film The Wedding Ringer (Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco) on January 16, 2015.
Building on its unparalleled library of characters and groundbreaking story lines, Miramax is also currently developing new television series alongside industry luminaries, with projects that include Gangs of New York with Martin Scorsese and Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, recently renewed for a second season.
Collectively, the library of more than 700 motion pictures has received 282 Academy Award® nominations and 68 Oscars® with four Best Picture awards, and includes such celebrated independent films as Pulp Fiction, No Country for Old Men and City Of God — as well as scores of commercial hits such as Chicago, Good Will Hunting and Bridget Jones's Diary.
Since the purchase of Miramax in 2010 by Qatar Holding, together with the investor group led by Miramax Chairman Thomas J. Barrack, Jr.'s Colony Capital, the studio's world-class global distribution team has successfully brought this renowned collection to existing and emerging platforms in nearly every country in the world.
