In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, Quentin Tarantino has parted ways with The Weinstein Company and is now going through the process of selling his latest film about the Charles Manson murders to various studios, TheWrap reports.

Due to Quentin Tarantino’s secrecy (which arises out of him being burned by the leaking of the Hateful Eight script), he actually requiring studio heads to read the script at his agents’ office. The baller status doesn’t end there.

After studios read the script, the agents at WME actually deal points to the studios to allow them to bid for the theatrical rights. After the first round of bids, the studios will pitch themselves to Tarantino in person. Yes, the studios will pitch themselves to Tarantino. Seriously, how much more badass can you get?

Reportedly, one small, unnamed company has made an aggressive offer to buy the film without even reading the script, but we have no idea who that is or if Tarantino will let that fly.

Also of note is that streaming services like Netflix and Amazon aren’t known to be involved in this process, and considering that Tarantino is very much a film purist, we don’t expect them to come to the table any time soon.

Again, the need to part ways with Harvey Weinstein came forth after allegations of rape and sexual harassment, and in a recent statement to the New York Times, Tarantino expressed his regret of marginalizing the signs he saw.

“I knew enough to do more than I did,” Tarantino said. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.”

    every studio has a imprint that is just oscar bait, they would probably do that. I’d imagine there has to be some theatrical tricks Tarantino wants remember Hateful Eight had that 70 mm print run which why I would say he wouldn’t do Netflix. But I do feel like Amazon or HBO would actually let him release in theaters or do anything special. I wouldn’t be surprise he paired up with Martin Scorsese, DeNiro (I’m still impressed with Wizard of Lies as a character piece) or even Brad Pitt who still maintain a lot of creative control of their works.

  • HATE!

    I don’t think he’d go with them, but I’d love to see A24.
