Fancy more Pulp Fiction footage? Quentin Tarantino is getting involved in non-fungible tokens by selling seven never-before-seen scenes from his classic 1994 film as NFTs.
Pulp Fiction catapulted Tarantino to filmmaking superstardom, winning the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
It coined iconic quotes – “Royale with Cheese” – and it’s illegal for university halls to not have at least one Pulp Fiction poster on the wall.
Almost three decades later, Tarantino is bringing the film into the digital age, announcing that he’s auctioning off seven uncut and unseen scenes as Secret NFTs (as IndieWire reports). They’ll be available via the NFT market OpenSea for anyone wealthy enough to consider buying them. And with Pulp Fiction being probably Tarantino’s most beloved film, there should be a lot of eager fans in competition for the seven NFTs.
Tarantino’s NFTs will also “include the uncut first handwritten scripts of Pulp Fiction and exclusive custom commentary from Tarantino, revealing secrets about the film and its creator.”
The director released a statement explaining his decision to enter the world of NFTs. “I’m excited to be presenting these exclusive scenes from Pulp Fiction to fans,” he said. “Secret Network and Secret NFTs provide a whole new world of connecting fans and artists and I’m thrilled to be a part of that.”
While music artists have really taken to NFTs, cinema hasn’t been as quick to embrace it, which means Tarantino’s decision is a bold move. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll see a filmmaker create an entire film and sell it off as an NFT. Just imagine being the sole owner of the latest Paul Thomas Anderson or Greta Gerwig film.
