On June 13 2011, The Weinstein Company announced that it had acquired U.S. distribution rights to Madonna’s directorial debut of a feature film, W.E.
Madonna had this to say:
“W.E. is about the nature of true love, and the sacrifices and compromises that are often made. I’ve wanted to tell this story for a very long time, and bringing it to life has been a great adventure for me. I’m looking forward to working with Harvey and The Weinstein Company on this film.”
