Report: Guilds Concerned About Possible Bergstein Acquisition of Miramax

With controversial investor in exclusive talks with Disney, NY Times says DGA, SAG and WGA express their misgivings

The major Hollywood guilds have contacted Disney, expressing their concern over a possible sale of Miramax to an investment firm headed by David Bergstein, the New York Times reports.

According to the Times report, the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America have expressed their alarm over the possibility of the Bergstein-headed group acquiring Miramax.

The guilds are listed as creditors in involuntary bankruptcy procedings that several Bergstein-owned companies are undergoing.

Disney and Bergstein’s group entered exclusive negotiations over Miramax last week.

The guilds offered not comment or confirmation to TheWrap.
