EXCLUSIVE: A number of distributors are circling Tara Wood’s feature-length Quentin Tarantino documentary 21 Years, with the Weinstein Co, Netflix and Amazon believed to be in the mix. The doc, which features interviews with several Tarantino acolytes including Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Foxx, Michael Madsen and Eli Roth, has attracted several offers in the high six figures, all for global rights. Leading Japanese distributor Gaga also is thought to be aggressively pursuing the pic for Japan.
TWC would appear a natural home for the project, given that it has produced and financed all of Tarantino’s films, though Tarantino’s strong home video appeal would also make this an attractive play for an SVOD platform such as Netflix or Amazon.
21 Years: Quentin Tarantino is a tribute documentary that focuses on career highs and (occasional) lows, explained through the eyes of the Oscar winner’s friends and favorite collaborators. The film promises a raw and honest perspective on Tarantino’s genius via plenty of spirited conversations as it also examines his non-linear storylines, highly stylized use of violence, the N word, badass women and everything in between.
Tara Wood, who also made 21 Years: Richard Linklater, directs and produces.
