The movie will be Tarantino’s first one without the Weinsteins’ involvement, be it at Miramax or The Weinstein Company. Following the numerous allegations of sexual assault and harassment involving Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino took his movie elsewhere. Soon afterward, almost every major studio in town was trying to wine and dine Tarantino for distribution rights. Everyone from Paramount to Warner Bros. campaigned, but ultimately Sony won, using Tarantino’s love of cinema history, no less. Seeing as how Tarantino is an award show favorite and his movies typically gain high critical praise, it was a big score for Sony.
