Miramax wants to get medieval on Quentin Tarantino.
The production company is taking legal action against the writer-director over his plans to auction off script pages for seven scenes that didn’t make the final cut and other artifacts from the cult classic "Pulp Fiction" as non-fungible tokens, or NFTs.
Miramax, which produced the 1994 film, filed a lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in California against Mr. Tarantino, alleging copyright infringement and breach of contract. Miramax is co-owned by BeIN Media Group and ViacomCBS Inc.
In the suit, Miramax said Mr. Tarantino is seeking to "capitalize, unilaterally, on Miramax’s rights to ‘Pulp Fiction.’" The suit follows a cease-and-desist letter sent by Miramax last week to Mr. Tarantino that said his Pulp Fiction NFT plans were a material breach of his rights agreement with the company.
