My GRAVITY lawsuit and how it affects every writer who sells to Hollywood - Tess Gerritsen
My GRAVITY lawsuit and how it affects every writer who sells to Hollywood - Tess Gerritsen: "In 1999, I sold the film rights to my book GRAVITY to New Line Productions. The contract stipulates that if a movie is made based on my book, I will receive ‘based upon’ credit, a production bonus, and a percentage of net profits. The book is about a female medical doctor/astronaut/Mission Specialist who is stranded aboard the International Space Station after the rest of her crew is killed in a series of accidents."
This looks like more of a contract-related lawsuit and less of a copyright-related lawsuit.
