Novel to film rights
August 8, 2013 5:15 AM Subscribe
How do I find out if the film rights are available to a book/novel? Or, more specifically, if they are not available - how do I find out who owns the rights?
I presume the original publishers will have this answer, though give the age of the book (from the 1940s), perhaps I should approach the author's estate?
And if a film company does have the film rights, will they (the publishers/estate) tell me which company has them?
