Miramax sues quentin pulp fiction nft

Update (November 17): Quentin Tarantino’s attorney, Bryan Freedman, has issued the following statement on Miramax’s lawsuit against him: “Miramax is wrong – plain and simple. Quentin Tarantino’s contract is clear: he has the right to sell NFTs of his hand-written script for Pulp Fiction and this ham-fisted attempt to prevent him from doing so will fail. But Miramax’s callous decision to disclose confidential information about its filmmakers’ contracts and compensation will irreparably tarnish its reputation long after this case is dismissed.”

Earlier (November 16): Miramax has filed a lawsuit against Quentin Tarantino over an NFT project involving “Pulp Fiction.” The Oscar winner announced at the start of November that he was putting seven uncut scenes from “Pulp Fiction” up for auction as Secret NFTs on OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace.

    It won the award for screenplay, which Tarantino shared with Roger Avary.

    Miramax also released Tarantino films including “Jackie Brown” and the two “Kill Bill” movies.

  • A major Hollywood studio is not happy with legendary director Quentin Tarantino’s plan to auction off scenes from his classic film Pulp Fiction as nonfungible tokens embedded with previously unreleased pages from the original handwritten script.

    Tarantino announced at the NFT.NYC conference earlier this month that a handful of scenes and script pages from 1994’s Pulp Fiction would be put on the Secret Network blockchain, which allows for greater data privacy and anonymity than more prevalent blockchains like ethereum.

    Now Miramax has filed a lawsuit in a federal court in California claiming that the studio “holds the rights needed to develop, market and sell NFTs related to its deep film library.”

    In court documents, lawyers for Miramax say that the studio sent cease-and-desist letters to Tarantino upon learning of his plan.

    According to a copy of Tarantino’s contract with Miramax for ‘Pulp Fiction,’ the director retained some rights to the film, including ‘soundtrack album, music publishing, live performance, print publication (including, without limitation, screenplay publication, making of books, comic books and novelization, in audio and electronic formats as well, as applicable), interactive media, theatrical and television sequel and remake rights, and television series and spinoff rights.”

    Tarantino’s attorney responded to Miramax’s accusation by claiming Tarantino is acting in his “Reserved Right” in regards to “screenplay publication.” But Miramax’s attorney responded: “This group chose to recklessly, greedily, and intentionally disregard the agreement that Quentin signed instead of following the clear legal and ethical approach of simply communicating with Miramax about his proposed ideas.

    While Tarantino’s attorney responded by arguing the director was acting within his “Reserved Rights,” Miramax accused Tarantino of intentionally disregarding the agreement he signed and attempting to devalue the NFT rights to Pulp Fiction moving forward.

    Proskauer Rose LLP partner Bart Williams, who is representing Miramax, also said in a statement, “Miramax will defend all of its rights in regard to its library, including rights relating to NFTs, and will not allow Quentin’s representatives to deceive others into believing they have the authority to make similar deals in violation of the rights agreements they signed.”
