Film studio Miramax has filed a lawsuit against Quentin Tarantino after the director revealed his plans for a series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) based on "Pulp Fiction," The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The Los Angeles-based studio says that it sent a cease-and-desist letter to Tarantino. According to Miramax, Tarantino's intention to sell the NFTs devalues the studio's efforts for NFTs based on its library of films.

"Tarantino's conduct has forced Miramax to bring this lawsuit against a valued collaborator in order to enforce, preserve, and protect its contractual and intellectual property rights relating to one of Miramax's most iconic and valuable film properties," the company wrote in its lawsuit.

Miramax claims Tarantino's conduct "could mislead others" into believing that the film studio is involved in his venture. The NFT auction could also mislead others into believing they have the rights to pursue similar deals or offerings, Miramax noted. Tarantino's attorney said that the director was acting within his "Reserved Rights."

As iHodl earlier reported, Quentin Tarantino was planning to auction seven uncut scenes from "Pulp Fiction" as NFTs on OpenSea. The famed director also planned to give away original handwritten scripts from the film and exclusive audio commentary.
