A Shanghai-based film producer has brushed off media reports that Amazon.com Inc. is looking to bring hugely popular Chinese science-fiction series “The Three-Body Problem” to the silver screen, confirming that it alone owns the adaptation rights.

Yoozoo Pictures said Thursday that it owns the rights to produce film and TV adaptations of the series, and the company’s cooperation with the books’ author, Liu Cixin, is ongoing.
