Mike Lang has been named CEO of the revamped Miramax The Wrap is reporting. Lang spent six years as a business development exec at New Corp. before departng in February. In reporting the move, Sharon Waxman cited two "knowledgeable individuals confirmed that Lang is close to signing on as CEO of Miramax."
Miramax was part of a dramatic sale from its parent, Disney, where Lang had once worked. The company's prized library, built by its founders Harvey and Bob Weinstein, was eyed by the brothers who had departed from the company earlier in the decade, but the duo lost out on the deal to Filmyard Holdings in a pact reportedly worth $660 million.
