Information on Acquiring Rights?
Since I'm located far and away from California, I'm wondering if anybody happens to have information on how one might obtain film rights to any of Mr. Bradbury's works.
I do not know the name of his current agent, and letters to publishers have, throughout history, gone notoriously unanswered by people seeking such information. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your time,

If you're serious about producing a movie, then I suggest you call the publishing house and simply tell them your story. They will tell you the name of his agent, if nothing else. Writers phone the houses all the time when trying to get an agent. Say you write a book in the style of Dean Koontz and you want to submit to his agent. You call the publisher and eventually you find someone who handles such calls. The publishing houses expect to get such queries. Good luck.
