Recently, “monster masterpiece” Quentin Tarantino announced that it would sell NFT the handwritten script of the film Pulp Fiction. This is one of Tarantino’s classic films, which won the Palme d’Or at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.
Directed by Quentin Tarantino
The NFT script will be sold with a clip from a scene in the film, along with an audio recording of Tarantino revealing the secrets behind the project to sell NFT.
Miramax sued Kill Bill director, alleging that he breached contract by selling NFT script. Tarantino’s lawyer Bryan Freedman again asserted that the director retains the right to print the film’s script Pulp Fiction, and Miramax was completely wrong to prevent Tarantino from selling NFTs.
Miramax argues that print and NFT are two different things. Hollywood Film Studio declares to hold full ownership and sale of scripts related to Pulp Fiction.
The movie Pulp Fiction could get director Tarantino into a legal dispute
In a lawsuit filed in court in Los Angeles (USA), Miramax argued that Tarantino had given the studio all media rights related to Pulp Fiction since 1993. Therefore, only Miramax has the rights to develop, market and sell NFT for its films.
Follow The Verge, the lawsuit between Miramax and Quentin Tarantino could set a precedent for other filmmakers, helping to define what NFT really is in the real world. The lawsuit alleges: “Tarantino’s actions may mislead other creators into believing that they have the right to exploit Miramax movies through NFT and other emerging technologies, despite the fact that Miramax holds the rights to the film.” .
