    This is very common though in the film industry. Hitchcock said he didn't read the books often or just a synopsis, or real fast and never looked at it again.
    Look at The Birds, very different from the story.
    I suppose many people can write a story or screenplay, but it's hard for them to come up with the original idea.

    Maybe ms. Mod has a theory of why this is, since I'm sure she must have dealt with this more closely?

    Ms. Mod is away on vacation until May 1st, but I'll make a note of your question and she may get back to you after that time.
