The final word is in. Hachette Book Group has officially dropped Weinstein Books from their company, totally and completely annihilating their deal post-sexual assault news.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed the decision after Weinstein’s victims stepped forward. He was even dropped by his own company. Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie stated they’d been forced to turn down Weinstein’s unwanted advances, and others have accused him of assault.

“Hachette Book Group has terminated the Weinstein Books imprint, effective immediately…Titles currently under the Weinstein Books imprint will be published by our Hachette Books imprint,” the company said to EW.
Now, Weinstein Books are going to be fused into Hachette Books. They’ve even used the title of some of Weinstein’s Oscar-nominated movie titles for books before. Alas, that time has gone and I’d say we’re pleased with the decision.
What will happen next? Only time will tell.
