* Disney in talks again with Gores on Miramax

* Suggests exclusive Weinstein, Yucaipa talks over

LOS ANGELES, May 25 (Reuters) - The Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) has resumed negotiations with brothers Alec and Tom Gores on a sale of Miramax, a source familiar with the situation said, signaling a deterioration in discussions with rival bidders the Weinstein Co and billionaire financier Ron Burkle’s Yucaipa.

A source familiar with the situation told Reuters last week that exclusive talks with Hollywood producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein and Yucaipa might hit a snag over disagreements about control of Miramax, the studio behind movies “Pulp Fiction” and “The English Patient”. [ID:nN21209679]
