Tarantino Is Still Bitter About Dispute With Disney | Film News
It seems like the famed director responsible for Kill Bill and Django Unchained isn’t one to let go of grudges, as he recently expressed his continued anger against Disney.
According to an interview with NY Daily News, the director was asked if he thought it possible for him to make peace with the multiplatform entertainment giant. Tarantino responded by saying “No they f–d me over, I would never (with Disney) in any way, shape or form after what they did to me”. His words reflect upon his work with Miramax studios, which was owned by Disney at the time. “They f—ed me over and I made them a lot of money for ‘Pulp Fiction'” he continued “and that really is a bad way to treat a former employee who has worked very well for them”.
The original issue began when The Hateful Eight was intended for an initial release at the Cinemarama Dome in Los Angeles. Tarantino explained during his interview with Howard Stern, that Disney threatened parent company ArcLight theaters that they would pull Star Wars: The Force Awakens from all their cinemas if they would honor their deal with the director. This evidently left a sour taste in his mouth, which was pretty evident in the footage of the initial interview.
