A new documentary about Quentin Tarantino has found a fitting home.

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

Tara Wood produced and directed the film, which will examine the first 21 years of Tarantino’s career and will include interviews with his frequent collaborators. 

The Weinstein Company’s Bob and Harvey Weinstein first began working with Tarantino nearly 25 years ago on his first film, Reservoir Dogs, and have partnered with Tarantino on all his projects since — the most recent being last year’s The Hateful Eight.

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.”

This is Wood’s second film in a series focused on the idea that an artist’s career can be characterized by its first 21 years of work. She also made 21 Years: Richard Linklater and is in the preliminary stages of her third installation, which is currently selling in Cannes.
