I may have answered this elsewhere, but the question comes up a lot from fans bothered by Universal’s handling of Tremors. In Hollywood, unlike in book publishing or in theater, the studios long ago figured out that they wanted exclusive control over material. You can ask to withhold or retain some rights, but only the most mega-powerful writers would ever have a chance of getting such a contract. The standard contract, which we signed when we sold Tremors, states that we are selling all rights for all media that exist (or are invented in the future) for all time. So you just have to hope you aren’t thrown off your own creation, which we eventually were.
