The director will issue non-fungible tokens despite a lawsuit from the Miramax film company, which accused him of violation of contract, copyright and unfair competition.
Non-fungible token (NFT) sales of Pulp Fiction, directed by director Quentin Tarantino, begin January 17, Blockworks reported. NFT tokens will be on sale until January 31st.
The director’s lawyer, Brian Friedman, explained that Tarantino has every right to sell his NFT tokens, despite the lawsuit filed against him by the film company Miramax. The company accused Tarantino of breach of contract, copyright and unfair competition. Friedman called the Miramax lawsuit “a failed attempt” to prevent Tarantino from issuing non-replaceable tokens.
The fact that Tarantino plans to sell his own NFT-tokens based on the movie “Pulp Fiction” became known in early November last year. The director will sell seven cut scenes from the film, the original handwritten script of the film, as well as his own audio commentary on it.
The film “Pulp Fiction” won the highest award at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival. In 1995, Tarantino and co-scriptwriter Roger Avary received an Oscar for Best Screenplay.
