Weinstein Plans TV Spin-offs, Plus 'Shakespeare in Love,' 'Rounders' Sequels

Things have come full circle for the Weinstein brothers, who left their Miramax company (and their library of hit movies) with Disney eight years ago. Three years ago, a group of investors bought Miramax but struggled to turn it into a working studio.

Miramax has now teamed up with the Weinstein Company to give the brothers access to its valuable library that includes hit films like Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, Rounders and Shakespeare in Love.

Speaking of the latter two films, Deadline reports that the new venture is beginning with sequels to Best Picture Oscar winner Shakespeare in Love and Rounders. The Weinsteins will also begin developing a TV series based on Oscar winner Good Will Hunting and the mid-'90s Ben Stiller comedy Flirting with Disaster.

This begs the question: which other films in the Miramax's catalog will the brothers look to spin off or sequelize? Swingers? Serendipity? Ahem, Kill Bill?

Sound off below with which Miramax classic, if any, you'd like to see return to theaters as a sequel or as a TV series.
