Quentin Tarantino appears to be moving forward with NFT’s “Pulp Fiction” auction plans, but the movie studio behind the film says they’re not his to sell… according to a new lawsuit.
The famous director is being sued by Miramax, who claims that his plan to sell a set of digital tokens featuring scenes from iconic films violates the studio’s rights.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Miramax claims that she was not informed of the NFT auction planned by Quentin, but that she eventually got wind of it and sent a cease and desist letter to the director. … Claiming that the film company had the rights to almost everything media related to the film, including the NFTs it seeks to sell.
In the documents, Miramax claims Quentin has stepped forward anyway and is now promoting the hell of the next auction on social media. So the studio says they had no choice but to take him to court.
Miramax goes after Tarantino for money, and the studio wants the judge to curb its NFT auction.
We have reached out to Quentin’s camp … so far no word in return.
