Key Takeaways:

  • Quentin Tarantino will release seven scenes from ‘Plup Fiction’ as NFTs.
  • The NFT market is trickling in Hollywood.

YEREVAN (CoinChapter.com) – Quentin Tarantino, the renowned American screenwriter, director, and author, will release seven never-seen-before scenes from his 1994 iconic crime drama ‘Pulp Fiction.’ The director will auction them off as NFTs, capitalizing on the booming non-fungible-token market.

The Pulp Fiction NFTs will contain the scenes that didn’t make the final cut and reward the lucky owners with “secret content.” The secret will hardly reveal Marsellus’ briefcase content, but it will include handwritten scripts of the movie and commentary from the director himself.

During the NFT.NYC conference in Times Square on Nov 2, Tarantino took the stage and talked about the making of ‘Pulp Fiction.’ The oscar-winning director mentioned that he wrote the script by hand, with a flood of scribbles and doodles on the margins.

The filmmaker also noted that he originally named John Travolta’s character Edward. Indeed, many fans would be happy that he ended up as Vincent Vega.

I’m excited to be presenting these exclusive scenes from ‘Pulp Fiction’ to fans. 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.

said the director.

In detail, Mr. Tarantino chose the Secret Network as a base for his upcoming NFTs. SCRT Labs, the development company behind the Secret Network, will drop the NFTs on the largest NFT marketplace, Opensea.

The Secret Network claims to be the first blockchain with privacy-preserving smart contracts. Thus, the transaction and ownership data is encrypted. In addition, they allow creators to include private metadata, which they can choose to display or keep concealed.

The Pulp Fiction director is far from the first Hollywood A-lister to dip his toes in the NFT pool. Famed filmmaker David Lynch collaborated with the alternative rock band Interpol to create an exclusive NFT collection.

Moreover, Warner Bros. plans to launch a collection called “The Matrix: Resurrections.” It will sell over 100,000 Matrix-inspired avatars for $50 each. On Dec 16, all buyers will be able to choose between a “Blue Pill,” which will keep their avatar in the Matrix, or a “Red Pill,” which will transform it into a resistance fighter.

Mark Elenowitz, president of Horizon Fintex, the software group behind the Upstream platform, commented on NFT’s utility for the film industry.

It’s a great way to finance the project and build a fan base that will watch the film once it’s released.

said the executive.

Pulp Fiction is far beyond the ‘funding’ stage, but Mr. Tarantino, as well as the army of his fans, could surely benefit from a series of NFT sales.
