A person with knowledge of the decision says The Weinstein Co. will rename itself following the firing of co-chairman Harvey Weinstein over sexual harassment allegations.

The person, who was not authorized to speak publicly, says the name change is expected to take some time, but "it will happen."

The Weinstein Co. is also moving to pull Weinstein's name from the credits of several upcoming television series, including "Waco" and "Yellowstone."

Weinstein and his brother, Bob, co-founded The Weinstein Co. in 2005. The brothers previously founded the film company Miramax, which was named after their parents, Miriam and Max.

The Weinstein Co. board of directors on Sunday fired Weinstein after an expose detailing decades of sexual harassment.

Weinstein has not yet responded publicly to his ouster but last week apologized for the pain his past behavior has caused.
