Disney Boots Weinstein from Producer Role on Upcoming Artemis Fowl Movie

Back in 2013, it was reported that Disney was developing a movie based on the hit Artemis Fowl book series with Harvey Weinstein producing. As Variety reported, Weinstein got the film rights years ago.

The Artemis Fowl movie is still in development, but with all the allegations of sexual harassment and worse against Weinstein, Disney has booted him off the project.

Per Variety and THR, a spokesperson for Disney said today, “We have terminated his services as producer.”

Earlier this week it was reported that his name is being removed from all Weinstein company-produced TV shows.
