The Weinstein Company (TWC) has announced that they are acquiring 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 his first film Reservoir Dogs and have partnered with Tarantino on all of his projects since.

21 Years: Quentin Tarantino marks Wood’s second film of the series. She had previously done a 21 Years: Richard Linklater and is already in the preliminary stages of her third installation, currently selling in Cannes.

Stemming from the idea that an artist’s career can be characterized by its first 21 years, the film is a behind-the-scenes look at writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s revolutionary body of work. The film will feature honest conversations with frequent collaborators as well as friends and fellow filmmakers about what it’s like to work with Tarantino and be part of the brilliant yet often controversial process of creating such iconic films the likes of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained.

Commented TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein: “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.”

Director and producer Tara Wood commented: “In making this documentary, we’ve learned Quentin is fiercely loyal and brilliant in his choice of partners in business and in life over the last 21+ years. His extraordinary relationship with Harvey and Bob started with ‘Reservoir Dogs’ continuing through ‘Hateful Eight,’ so we are thrilled to be part of the TWC family as our international partner on ’21 Years: Quentin Tarantino.’”

The deal for the project was negotiated by James Allen, David Glasser, Jennifer Malloy and Michal Podell Steinberg for TWC with Tara Wood on behalf of Wood Entertainment.
