  • How do I go about getting a film made?

    Having read your Letters from Hollywood, in imtation, well at least the title, of Aldous Huxley in which you told of being employed to write a 'Treatment' I'm wondering what are the processes involved in getting people interested in making a film.

    Specifically, Mythago Wood (or Rats & Gargoyles). Would I have to write a Treatment too? Also I'm not quite sure of copyright, but I do know I'd have to approach Mr Holdstock (or Ms Gentle). Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated as I'd really like to see those features in my lifetime.

    If you let me have your email, I'll pass on your interest to both people.
    There was a movie of Mythago Wood in the works, which Sony had the rights for, as I recall. Associate Producer was Robert Gould. He was enthusiastic. But gradually the script got stripped of the very elements which made the book great and I'm not sure what happened in the end, since Robert left the company, I think dissatisfied with Hollywood by that time. I don't know the state of Rats and Gargoyles. You would, however, be expected to buy an option before you wrote a script. At least, that's true in most cases.

      I've now worked out how you include an email link. Thanks, that would be fantastic. To even drum up interest in making them possible would be really great!

      And I'll keep 8O out for updates on Elric: The Movie

      Regards to you, New York and Hilary.
