Changes to Paycheck

In this weeks SciFi Weekly, Ben Affleck admits that some changes were made to his upcoming movie, Paycheck, based on Philip K. Dick’s short story of the same name.

  3. At this point, the possibility of a P.K. Dick movie being faithful to a P.K. book/story is about as likely as a Stephen King movie being faithful to a Stephen King book/story. Anybody remember “Lawnmower Man” the movie vs. the story?

  4. No, there’s a “Lawnmower Man” book?

  5. I think its a short story. I’m not sure. I do know its not up to King’s usually high standard concerning page count.
