Terez, I get what I want..except a winning football team..

Dan Snyder’s caught the movie bug. The Redskins owner, who went into the producing business with Tom Cruise, is quietly trying to buy what remains of Miramax Films, reports the L.A. Times. The asking price is $700 million, give or take a few million. The artsy film house co-founded by Harvey Weinstein, and eventually sold to Disney, closed down in January after being responsible for Oscar-winning movies like “Shakespeare in Love,” “The English Patient” and “Chicago.” What’s the Miramax connection? Well, Weinstein sits on the board of Snyder’s Six Flags, which filed for bankruptcy last year. A spokesman for Snyder could not be reached for comment. — Washington Post
