Will get interesting. I expect the rights for the movies will be determined by whatever contracts are in place when the deal was made although I think some contracts would become meaningless. In terms of an author who sold the rights for a book or book series, the author would be able to sell the rights to someone else as long as the new deal steered clear of things that were in the movie that weren’t in the book. The original screenwriter could possibly get access to their work as it was written prior to changes made later, but not to changes that were made to the work by the director, producer, or others.
