I was wondering if anyone can help me with this one.  I am currently doing research on 'The Old Man and the Sea'.  Although there have been numerous film versions of the novel completed, I still cannot find who one would contact to see about acquiring or optioning the rights to produce another version. 

This novel is not yet in the public domain, nor do I expect it to be.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.

Cedarpants: I think you need to do a fair amount more research.

I believe the rights to The Old Man and the Sea belong to the author, Ernest Hemingway, for 75 years, or to his estate (the Hemingway family, namely the surviving children - now only Patrick).

If I'm wrong, try Simon & Schuster, which owns Scribners, Hemingway's publishers.

Best,
hijo
