Several blogs are talking about the subrights mentioned in contracts with publishers.

Author Madeleine Robins at Deep Genre gave a brief overview of subrights in Contracts 101: Grant of Rights.

Agent Jessica Faust at Bookends discussed merchandising rights in The Branded Author.

Agent Lauren Abramo at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management wrote an excellent, detailed post about Subrights. In that post, he talks about film rights (among other subrights) and gives a link to a Publishers Weekly article. According to this article, both HarperCollins and Random House are partnering with film companies to make film adaptations based on their books. So it looks like more books are going to be making it to film now.
