  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 750)...

    I would like to make a film (produce a television series, produce a play, etc.) based on Ishmael. Who owns the relevant rights? How do I go about obtaining the necessary permissions?


    ...and the response:

    All film, theatrical, and audio rights to Ishmael were ceded to Turner Publishing when I became the winner of the Turner Tomorrow competition. Turner Publishing was later sold to the Time Warner corporation along with other Ted Turner properties. The film, theatrical, and audio rights to Ishmael then belonged (and still belong) to Time Warner. The film rights were leased to Touchstone pictures for the making of the film Instinct, after which they reverted to Time Warner. Numerous people (including myself) have attempted to buy, lease, or option one or more of these rights since then, but no one has succeeded in finding anyone at Time Warner willing to discuss the matter. I have no further information or suggestions to make about it.

    The film, theatrical, and audio rights to all my other books belong to me and are available.
