“It’s a tragedy,” said the producer and co-writer of “Frozen” in an interview with The Advocate, a gay magazine, on Thursday.
“The idea of gay people, especially young gay people who are growing up, wanting to be in the company of straight people or even being able to come to a movie or a play.
That’s something I have a hard time dealing with, and it’s something that’s been a constant theme of my life.
But I’m trying to get through it.”
The Weinstein Co. has yet to release a full synopsis for the movie, which will be directed by Justin Lin, but the synopsis describes the story of a man whose life is suddenly thrown into turmoil when his best friend, a lesbian, goes missing.
The story is set to open on Broadway in January 2019.
The Weinstein Company said the film will be a family drama about “the family that we lost,” which includes a “family dynamic, friendship, family dynamics and a love story that spans all walks of life.”
The studio has yet a full plot description for “Frost/Nixon.”
Weinstein, who is known for his Oscar-nominated work with Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuaron, has faced accusations of sexual misconduct against several women, including several women who worked with him at the Sundance Film Festival.
In January, he settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with one of his accusers, saying he did not remember what he said or did during their time working together in the late 1990s.
In the interview with the Advocate, the Weinstein Co.’s chief operating officer, Jeff Miller, said the Weinstein Company’s “tremendous momentum” for “The Weinstein Show” was driven by the success of “The New Line Cinema Classics” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which have grossed $1.6 billion and $1 billion, respectively.
