It’s an exciting step turning a book or other written work into a project for the small or big screen, and when this happens you’ll need a Book Option Agreement.  Whether you’re an author, producer or a production company, you can use our Book Option Agreement Checklist to determine the key terms that should be considered and included in a Book Option Agreement.  Key terms of a Book Option Agreement include payment, exclusivity and the involvement of the author in the screen production or project.


Fill out the checklist below to get your Book Option Agreement started. 

If you can’t answer certain questions, you’ll probably need legal advice, so just put ‘I don’t know’ or get in touch!
