Meanwhile, it has emerged that Weinstein is teaming up with US teachers to educate students about the life of Mandela via screenings of Long Walk to Freedom.
The Weinstein Company, the production and distribution firm behind the film, is working with the Nelson Mandela Foundation to create teaching tools including clips, behind-the-scenes footage and archival materials,according to the Wrap. It is hoped they will help students in Los Angeles learn about the life of the South African president and former anti-apartheid freedom fighter. Thousands of high-school students from the city will attend free screenings of the film this week.
"Mandela's story teaches so many critical life lessons and film, as a medium, is an increasingly important teaching tool for modern, tech-savvy students," said Los Angeles Unified School District chief John Deasy in a statement. "This film will complement the conversations already occurring in classrooms across Los Angeles and hopefully serve as a conversation-starter on important, character-building issues like injustice retaliation, and forgiveness."
Weinstein, who chairs the Weinstein Company with his brother Bob, said the educational programme offered a chance to give something back the community. "This film was never just about making a movie," he said. "We knew from the beginning that it would be linked to a bigger cause, a broader call to action, something that would be truly worthy of the name Mandela."
Long Walk to Freedom is due to open across the US on Christmas Day, following a limited release in New York and LA the previous week. It arrives in the UK on 3 January.
