On Monday, The Weinstein Co. said it will receive an immediate cash infusion from Colony Capital and is in negotiations for the potential sale of all or a significant portion of the company responsible for producing films such as "Django Unchained," ''The Hateful Eight" and "Lion."
Showtime was a partner with The Weinstein Co. in the project but the network said Friday "we do not intend to move forward with the current configuration of the project and are exploring our options."
