With the future of the Weinstein Company already uncertain, the backers of the family film “Paddington 2” are looking to sever distribution ties with the company, Variety has confirmed.

 

According to The Guardian, Heyday Films and French company StudioCanal, the co-producers of the film, feel that a movie that caters to children shouldn’t remain associated with the sex harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

 

The company is still contractually obligated to honor its distribution deal with TWC-Dimension, which was signed back in 2013, but has the opportunity to retrieve the rights if TWC goes under.

 

Should Heyday and StudioCanal succeed in regaining distribution control, both companies will find another competing distributor to launch the film in the U.S.
