Producers Guild Calls Emergency Meeting to Determine Harvey Weinstein’s Fate

Guild’s national board of directors will meet Saturday, where Weinstein will likely be terminated

The Producers Guild of America will convene in an emergency meeting on Saturday where Harvey Weinstein’s membership in the guild will likely be terminated, an individual familiar with the plans told TheWrap.

The PGA’s national board of directors will host the urgent session to respond to rape and sexual assault accusations made against the longtime filmmaker and indie studio chief. Suspension is on the table but termination is likely, the insider. The decision will be put to a vote.

Representatives for the PGA did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The PGA meeting follows a similar session announced this week by the Academy of Motion Pictures Art and Sciences, which determines the winners of the Oscars.

It would seem Weinstein’s legacy is being dismantled at light speed since the publication of two bombshell reports detailing the harrowing allegations — one last Thursday from the New York Times and a deep investigative piece from The New Yorker on Tuesday.

A-list actresses — including Miramax’s brightest star Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Heather Graham, Lea Seydoux and many more — have come forward with accounts and allegations. Top executives like Jeffrey Katzenberg and UTA”s Jeremy Zimmer have condemned the mogul in internal memos and emails.

Weinstein was fired as co-chairman of The Weinstein Company on Sunday by the firm’s board of directors, including his brother Bob.

News of the meeting was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
