There's been quite a number of film treatment of SF novels by Phillip K Dick and they have all, at least to my impression, been wildly successful from Blade-Runner based on his Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep to Total Recall based upon We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.

But he didn't also write SF, he also wrote Alt-History. In Man In The High Castle is about an alternative history where Hitler happened to win WWII. Laughable of course now - but still thought-provoking.

It seems ideal for a film treatment. Has one ever been mooted? Or done? Whether on TV or the Big Screen.

    @JourneymanGeek: Film is a creative discipline. This often means they take liberties wirh a story. Why bother reading the same book and watch the same story? Only a pedant who want to watch fifty reruns of the same film might want to do that ... Sep 23 at 12:40

    I'm puzzled why this question was asked here, as it comes up straight away if you even type the title into a search engine. I don't think SE is adding value to a basic usage of a search engine here.

    @DanielRoseman "general reference" isn't a close reason any more. It's a bad question, but not an off-topic one.
