Z never responded to the letter, and later on Warner Bros. offered $110,000 for the rights to Y’s book but his agent declined it. He hoped for $150,000 from Paramount Pictures, which wanted to cast Z in the film. The deal did not occur and Y was angry that his agent asked for too much money.• Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola bought the rights in 1979.
