Miramax, the film studio behind Pulp Fiction, is suing Quentin Tarantino over his plans to launch a Pulp Fiction NFT collection.
Miramax claimed it was left in the dark about the auction until it found out and fired a cease and desist letter to the director that stated Miramax had the rights to everything media-related involving Pulp Fiction.
“Tarantino’s conduct has forced Miramax to bring this lawsuit against a valued collaborator in order to enforce, preserve, and protect its contractual and intellectual property rights relating to one of Miramax’s most iconic and valuable film properties,” Miramax wrote in its lawsuit. “Left unchecked, Tarantino’s conduct could mislead others into believing Miramax is involved in his venture. And it could also mislead others into believing they have the rights to pursue similar deals or offerings, when in fact Miramax holds the rights needed to develop, market, and sell NFTs relating to its deep film library.”
The director first announced the Pulp Fiction NFT collection at an NFT.NYC event earlier this month. The collection consists of seven uncut scenes from the movie, all with exclusive bonus content included, such as handwritten scripts from the film and exclusive audio commentary from Tarantino himself.
