Second Director Says Harvey Weinstein Blacklisted Mira Sorvino From Appearing in Film

Following Peter Jackson‘s recent interview, in which he said he believed he was unknowingly part of a “smear campaign” by Harvey and Bob Weinstein to prevent Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd from being cast in Lord Of The Rings, a second director is now stepping forward to agree with those suspicions.

Terry Zwigoff, the director of 2003 comedy Bad Santa, tweeted on Saturday (December 16) that he was interested in casting Mira – but the Weinstein Company allegedly hung up on him when he proposed the idea.

“I was interested in casting Mira Sorvino in BAD SANTA, but every time I mentioned her over the phone to the Weinsteins, I’d hear a CLICK. What type of person just hangs up on you like that?! I guess we all know what type of person now. I’m really sorry Mira,” he wrote.

After Harvey issued a statement denying Peter‘s telling of the story, Peter responded with a lengthy statement of his own.
