    This has allways been a ? for me,and bein there r allot of writers and authors here what better place to ask this.when does an authors book get changed into a screen play so a movie can be made from it?Does the author have anymore say in his book once it has been "picked" for a movie?or does the screen writer read said book and make changes he thinks he needs to "pull" off the movie?

    Well, from all the books turned to movies that I have seen, YES! Hollywood usually screws the pooch with great books. The Deathlands TV movie is a fine example.

    But, sometimes, like in the John Carter movie, the movie is as good, if not better than the book.
