Lantern Capital set to buy Weinstein Company

Producer Weinstein speaks at the ceremony for the unveiling of the star for Italian composer Ennio Morricone on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood

The company fell apart towards the end of past year, following the publication of exposes detailing Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct.

Alexandra Canosa, a producer on the series Marco Polo, which was executive produced by Weinstein, made the allegations in an amended complaint filed in NY supreme court on Monday.

On Monday, she detailed her allegations in documents filed in New York Superior Court. The suit names producer Alexandra Canosa as plaintiff and claims that Weinstein "insisted on meeting with plaintiff in isolated environments for business purposes, made sure that no other persons or bystanders were around when having business meetings with plaintiff, demanded sexual contact, and threatened plaintiff if she would not give him what he wanted, and forcing himself on plaintiff despite repeated requests to stop". Canosa says the assaults took place over a five-year period, saying he sexually assaulted her between 2010 and 2014, and physically assaulted her in 2015, and verbally threatened her as recently as 2017, weeks before The New York Times and the New Yorker published multiple accusations of sexual assault and harassment against him.

Canosa alleged that Weinstein sexually assaulted her multiple times between 2010 and 2015, saying she was sexually assaulted in a NY hotel room, "sexually assaulted, verbally abused, bullied and intimidated multiple times" in Los Angeles, "sexually assaulted and raped" in Malaysia, and "physically assaulted and verbally abused" inside Weinstein's room in Budapest.

The five women who have filed a class-action law suit against Harvey Weinstein in federal district court have backed Howard Kagan's bid and issued a strong statement against Lanter's offer as it does not propose any compensation for the victims. She says that the failure to investigate claims of misconduct enabled Weinstein to continue victimizing employees while shielding him from punishment or consequences.

Hollywood trade publication Deadline Hollywood first reported earlier on Monday that Lantern was the winning bidder for the Weinstein Company. She also accuses the board of Weinstein Company of enabling the producer's behaviour. They announced in March that they would, in fact, be filing for bankruptcy. On Tuesday, Judd went on Good Morning America to make her case. He is under criminal investigation in New York, London, Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.

Weinstein has previously denied all non-consensual sex allegations.

Co-founded with Bob Weinstein, Harvey's brother, the Weinstein Company produced and distributed critically acclaimed hits including "The King's Speech" and "Silver Linings Playbook", as well as TV's fashion reality competition "Project Runway". He has not been charged criminally.
