Ok so I went through 11 pages on here and have done a decent amount of Google searching, but found nothing specific to my question. I'm working on a game based on a movie. For the purpose of this I'm going to use a different movie as my example. Let’s say I'm making a game based on "Driving Miss Daisy" (because why not?).
Now I've seen plenty of questions about taking an "idea" to a company (both game and rights holders) and trying to get funding but I have no reputation and this is a side project at this point so that's probably not a good idea. But let’s say I work on my "Driving Miss Daisy" game for a year or so and at some point call it "finished". It has good art, co-op, a campaign, and achievements (because, why not?) all made 100% by me and me alone. Does anyone know the process or the likelihood of me going to Warner Bros. and their games division with some kind of deal splitting profits if they allow the release or help with it etc etc.
Even if I hear "There’s no way, ‘Driving Miss Daisy: the Game’, while awesome, will never see the light of day", I'll probably keep working. I just wanted an idea of what kind of outcome could come from this and this is a different situation than I've generally seen asked. Like I said, most are about getting money for the development itself or trying to re-release old games that have been abandoned.
Thank you to anyone who might have information about this.
