A Word of Caution When Seeking the Rights to a Book

If you are looking to acquire the rights to a book and approach a studio with it, be cautious. Most books are offered to studios for motion picture production during the release of the publication. Every studio has their literary department read and write coverage on the book. Most of the time, the book is rejected, and the coverage will be filed away. The book already has a negative label on it, therefore it would take something significant such as a screenplay writer, director, or movie star attached to the project before a studio will re-consider the book.
