Penguins Owner Ron Burkle Lost Out On Miramax Written by tecmo on Friday, 30 July 2010 15:16. Billionaire Ron Burkle was in talks to buy dead movie studio Miramax. It was just sold to a Burkle-less group of investors. Guess he'll have to be content with the Pens and Mario and Sid and a Cup and billions of dollars. Damn.
