      What about The Man in the High Castle or that one about the President who fools his people into thinking that the world outside is unsafe (it isnt)? I forgotten the title.

      do your research FILM! 2nd variety is already a film called 'Screamers' starring Peter Weller (robocop), it's s**t but the story is near enough the same. What about 'Flow my tears the police man said', 'the three stigmata of palmer edlrich', 'martain time slip' or 'time out of joint' Someone should really do a better job of Paycheck too

      @playsatan13 I've said that in the copy. Thought it was worth including as although Screamers was a bit of a dud, the original plot is worth revisiting.

      Fair enough i missed that bit, but all the Dick films end up c**p anyway, blade runner and total recall are only from fractions of the stories their based on. so you cant count them as d***s true work (especially seeing the writer hated do androids dream.....). Paycheck was bad as hell. But for some strange reason a Scanner Darkly worked ??????

      Most of the ones listed are short stories, I sense a cop out here. It would be very difficult to do but I would love to see VALIS done.

      I love that you've taken the trouble to write this article, brilliant! Roog, Beyond Lies The Wub and Ubik would be great on screen. I also think Time Out Of Joint could be pretty amazing. I don't see how they could make a film of VALIS. If the book doesn't really make sense, how could a film version?
