Thirteen years after the release of Pulp Fiction, the studio that produced the film is taking legal action to prevent Quentin Tarantino from releasing unreleased episodes from the made-for-TV series, Bullets Over Broadway.
In a lawsuit filed on Monday, the Weinstein Company is asking the court to stop Tarantino from making a third feature film after he suggested that he was planning to include scenes from the Spike Lee-directed miniseries.
The lawsuit details how Tarantino allegedly spoke to one of the other executives on the staff of the production company about making the episodes, and said he was interested in completing the series before the opportunity for filming was lost. He also stated that he wanted to return to the series in the future. The Weinstein Company didn’t go far with the pitch because it didn’t have a deal with Tarantino to produce the episodes.
“Quentin Tarantino had an opportunity to work with Tarantino. Tarantino went into a pair of meetings at HBO, asked to see unaired episodes of Bullets Over Broadway. But in both meetings he was turned down and offered something else instead,” the lawsuit says.
