To Orwell Today,

Dear Jackie Jura,

I am currently working on a big project for a college course I am taking where I need to perform a mock pitch for a film. I am going to make the pitch for one of my favorite books, Burmese Days. In order to do this successfully, I need to know who currently owns the film rights to this book. I know Richard Blair owned them a few years ago, but is that information up to date?

I would so appreciate a response as this is a very important assignment for me. Thank you so much and great job with the website.

Samara Kaplan

Greetings Samara,

I agree that BURMESE DAYS would make a GREAT movie.

The info I have on rights to Orwell's books is in the articles ORWELL A WRITER WRONGED and 1984 A BAD MOVIE.

All the best with your pitch,
Jackie Jura
