This person added that the studio isn't now planning to sell distribution rights to other movies on its release slate, including the drama, "The Current War," the comedy "The War with Grandpa" and "The Upside," a remake of a hit French comedy that will star Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston.

This could erase what seemed like an indelible stain of scandal and could reignite the company by removing the stigma on assets that include library titles, the Kevin Costner-Taylor Sheridan series Yellowstone, movies like the recut Benedict Cumberbatch-Michael Shannon-starrer The Current War and the Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes musical In The Heights, as well as numerous other series and films. It might make possible the David O Russell-directed series with Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore, which was scrapped at Amazon even though it had a two-season commitment.
The Weinstein Company has a handful of unreleased movies left, including “Polaroid,” a teenage horror movie; “The War With Grandpa,” a comedy starring Robert De Niro; “The Upside,” a comedy starring Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston; and “The Current War,” a period drama. Box office analysts say prospects are mixed for those films, each of which would require marketing campaigns costing tens of millions of dollars.
I love the sincerity of Michael Shannon. It maybe will sound paranoid but I don’t think BC could speak so freely without some tabloid, The Guardian or some “fan” taking something out of context and making a big fuss about it! Just to be clear, I imagine that if BC showed some concern about his Weinstein’s movie he would be accused of insensitivity against victims or something! BC is not the only one, of course! I guess it’s related to be talked too much about but it’s very interesting how some actors are so free to be themselves and others not!
