Weinstein Company Buys Quentin Tarantino Documentary ’21 Years’

The Weinstein Company has bought worldwide rights, excluding French-speaking territories, to the upcoming documentary “21 Years: Quentin Tarantino.”

The project is being produced and directed by Tara Wood. Harvey and Bob Weinstein began working with Tarantino nearly 25 years ago on “Reservoir Dogs” and have partnered with Tarantino on all of his projects since.

The movie was first unveiled in November at the American Film Market. It examines the first 21 years of Tarantino’s career and includes interviews with frequent collaborators, including Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington.

Wood also directed the documentary “21 Years: Richard Linklater.” Both films draw upon the idea that the first 21 years of work defines the career of an artist.

Tarantino’s first film was 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs,” followed by “Pulp Fiction,” “Jackie Brown,” the two “Kill Bill” movies, “Death Proof,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “Django Unchained” and “The Hateful Eight.”

Wood is in the preliminary stages of her third installation, currently selling in Cannes.

TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement: “Working with Quentin time and time again continues to be one of the highlights in my career both at Miramax and TWC – not only because he’s one of our industry’s true visionaries and auteurs, but because he’s become a true friend to Bob and me over the past 20 years.  There’s a universal understanding when you hear the name Tarantino. Tara’s film will give audiences a glimpse into the man we have had the honor of knowing and we couldn’t think of a better home for a film documenting Quentin.”

The deal for “21 Years: Quentin Tarantino” was negotiated by James Allen, David Glasser, Jennifer Malloy and Michal Podell Steinberg for TWC with Wood on behalf of Wood Entertainment.
