Here's a curious story we missed when it was first posted by the New York Times last week. So thanks to Simon Dang at The Playlist, who likely himself caught the article late via yesterday's correction. Apparently there are two competing documentaries in the works about the independent film king Harvey Weinstein. And one of them is to be made by Quentin Tarantino.

The main focus of the Times piece is on the other film, which is being developed by Barry Avrich. He's the director of the 2005 doc The Last Mogul, about agent-turned-studio head Lew Wasserman, and he's reportedly just received funding for his $1 million-budgeted expose, currently titled Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project.

And sure, that project sounds plenty interesting, particularly as it's being planned as an uncensored look at a "a brilliant, feared, charming and yet loathsome character," who is completely unsupportive of Avrich's topic of choice, regardless of how the former Miramax and present Weinstein Company head will be portrayed. But the Tarantino business is what we're all really intrigued about, right?
