Movie Rights: Approx. What Does It Cost To Get Rights To A Story Or Screenplay, To Do A Re-make? E.g. "vertigo", Etc.

I realize that it depends on the 'property'. But, can you give me an idea? How much did it cost to get the rights to 'Bewitched' or any of the other T.V. show remakes?(I Spy, My Favorite Martian, etc.) And, approx. how much to remake a film, such as Vertigo, The Blob, Fistful of Dollars, High Noon, or whatever....?

Screenplay coverage is an unbiased professional review of literary material. In its truest form, it is a tool for executives, agents, managers, and producers. But unlike any other, Screenfantasy's "Screenplay Coverage" is mainly by-product our company's own tool for creating screenwriting talents for our motion picture production. It can also be the product of a Hollywood search mechanism aimed at serious screenwriters. Our coverage is in the form of reports, which usually focus on flaws, with the goal of pinpointing professional-caliber screenplays. Unfortunately, these points aren't open for debate - they are how we feel about the material, good or bad.Since screenfantasy.co.uk is not Hollywood, screenplay coverage for our members can be a very important tool for any writer who wishes to increase the quality level of his/her work, so it can merit the standard needed for production. This will also be an advantage should the writer gain outside interest in his or her work.Our fee for screenplay coverage starts from £100, depending on the page count of your screenplay. This will include a 1-2 page analysis on the current state of your screenplay. Our reports will have in depth notes on your concept, story, characters, dialogue, scene settings, time period, grammar, action descriptions, structure, title and other areas where your work might be judged by the industry, the screenfantasy.co.uk community or wherever it might need general improvement.

"There is no single answer " Several factors go into the equation:1) who owns the rights to the screenplay at this time? Do they need money? Or do they see screenplay ownership as a long term investment?2) when was the last remake made?(they don't want to make them too close together; a new Mr. Deeds every 5 years ruins the value, while waiting every 20 years is probably more likely to make money?3) what was the success of the film the first time it was made(or remade)? If it was a blockbuster success 20 years ago, the price will be higher than if it was a dog that disappeared after a week or two.4) who are the anticipated actors going to be? Is the remake seen as a big commercial push, with top name actors and promotion? Or is the intention to use unknown actors and remake the film just for the sake of artistic beauty? 5) how directly are you going to use the previous screenplay? Are you going to use it word-for-word, or are you going to modify/change it to update dialog and concepts?(If so, that will cost you more for permissions, no doubt)As you can see, there are now hard and fast rules here - it's all about a bunch of intabgible and some tangible factors coalescing at the time you want to make your purchase.You can get some idea of screenplay costs by reading Variety(weekly magazine of the entertainment industry) - available at most large public libraries. It doesn't list every purchase by any means, but it does occasionally give the pricing for rights for certain film and screenplay properties.
