The movie producer recently told The Huffington Post that he believes Hollywood has a responsibility when it comes to portraying violence on screen.
He said: "It's a question that I wrestle with all the time. I've been involved with violent movies, and then I've also said at a certain point, 'I can't take it anymore. Please cut it.'
"You know, you've got to respect the filmmaker, and it's a really tough issue."
Weinstein has produced the films of Quentin Tarantino, including the upcoming Django Unchained.
Feeling that Hollywood "can't shirk our responsibility" in regards to violence, he admitted a desire in discussing how to deal with the issue with other key figures in the movie industry.
"I think, as filmmakers, we should sit down – the Marty Scorseses, the Quentin Tarantinos, and hopefully all of us who deal in violence in movies – and discuss our role in that," he explained.
Weinstein's comments come in the aftermath of the recent Aurora cinema shooting, which took place during a premiere screening of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Rises.
