NFTs are making waves in the movie industry as well. Quentin Tarantino recently announced that he would launch his Pulp Fiction NFTs regardless of the Miramax lawsuit. NFT collectibles based on Pulp Fiction will be launched this month. The sale was already delayed once due to a legal challenge from Miramax.
Pulp Fiction NFTs Announced Back in November
In November 2021, Quentin Tarantino announced that he would launch an NFT collection based on his famous movie from 1994. However, he was prevented from doing so due to Miramax filing a lawsuit, claiming that he didn’t have the right to sell such digital items.
Regardless, SCRT labs, the primary developer of the Secret Network blockchain platform and Tarantino’s partner, stated that the NFTs will still happen.
The seven NFT collectibles will be auctioned on separate dates, starting on January 17 and ending on January 31.
Each NFT will feature imagery from the original handwritten script for the film, paired with a new audio commentary from Quentin himself.
In addition, the Secret Network NFTs will contain hidden content, available only to the token’s owner.
Furthermore, Tarantino’s legal team believes he can sell the NFTs since he kept the rights to commercialize reproductions of the script. Since NFTs will be based on the original script, the question remains whether Miramax had the right to sue.
