The Miramax boys, Bob and Harvey Weinstein, had to put together a coalition to distribute the new Michael Moore film after their Disney bosses allegedly cock-blocked the deal. It was really a no-brainer, given that Moore's film just took top honors at Cannes. This new outfit's name? The Fellowship Adventure Group.
Well, they always say in the film world that if the F.A.G.'s are behind it, it'll be a smash. We're looking forward to their next coalition, the Jentleman's Entertainment Works. Oh the hilarity.
