A narrative about “Yellowstone” co-creator Taylor Sheridan reclaiming his iconic movie “Wind River” from convicted intercourse offender Harvey Weinstein began recirculating on-line in August.
Sheridan’s battle to get “Wind River” again from The Weinstein Firm was first reported by Vainness Truthful in 2017. The movie facilities on sexual assault inside Native American communities and was eight weeks into its launch when information of Weinstein’s sexual aggression broke.
“Every day a subsequent story broke, and it acquired progressively worse, and issues went from coercion and harassment to assault,” Sheridan instructed the outlet on the time. “At that time, feeling sick, it turned a revelation that … I can’t have a movie about violence towards girls silenced by the perpetrator of that very act. I known as the financier, I known as the producer, I known as Jeremy [Renner], and Lizzie [Olsen], and I stated, ‘That is what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna take it again.’”

Weinstein was a producer on the movie, regardless of contentious negotiations with Sheridan, per Vainness Truthful. Studying of Weinstein’s habits was a “gut-punch,” so Sheridan reportedly known as then-Weinstein Co. President and COO David Glasser to take away the movie from the corporate.
Glasser was apparently as distraught as Sheridan in regards to the information, Vainness Truthful famous. And clearly Glasser’s affiliation with the corporate didn’t go away a scar, since Glasser is now serving to Sheridan construct his tv empire with Paramount.
