Exactly I have never heard of a novelisation of a book based of a novel.

Someone wrote a version of I-Robot that was a blend of the movie and the original novel apparently. So there is precident for this.

It's dangerous to underestimate the HLP's level of idiocy.

I'm convinced there will be a novelization of the movie. Two reasons:

1. Anderjacket will finally get a chance to write Dune "the way it should have been." More pew-pew-pew; less of that nasty thinking stuff.

2. Bobo Herbert will get to enjoy the ultimate revenge against his father: rewriting his masterpiece.

Those two clowns will not pass up an opportunity to "write" Dune, even if everyone is very careful to say that it's just based on the movie.

Oh, three reasons, actually:

3. Novelizations are easy money. They're cheap to make, quick to get printed, and no one expects too much. They fall right within Anderjacket's comfort zone, in other words.

Don't forget that there's a precedent closer to home:

KJA did the novelization of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. (Which is a film based on a graphic novel.)

http://www.amazon.com/League-Extraordin ... 074347676X

(I hope I didn't miss someone mentioning this above.)
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Fun stuff from the League reviews:

"There is a theory that *any* time spent reading is time well spent. If this is the reading matter, I disagree -- separating one's belly-button lint into individual strands would be time better spent. The quality of writing would be barely acceptable from a middle school student. The "plot," such as it is, would be barely acceptable from a grade schooler. The two big moments of the book are the destruction of Venice by a method so incredibly illogical and moronic that it would be an unacceptable plot device coming from anyone older than seven, and a raid by The League on a castle in (pick one: Mongolia, Manchuria, Russia, Siberia -- the author clearly has no idea, so your guess is as good as any). "

That is how you open a review. :clap:

Moore did disown any involvement with the raping that was the LoEG movie. I bet KJA looked at the GN and was wanking to the pics of the Invisible Man bopping the all girl's school students.

that moron still gets an average three stars customer reviews?
And then:
5.0 out of 5 stars a very enjoyable read!
Most of the negative reviews about this novel complain that it's not the comic book. It's not the comic, but I don't think that's a bad thing. The novel is well written and characters, like Quatermain, are closer to their literary selves than Moore's reworked versions. Fans of the original characters and the LXG movie will enjoy this the most. I did.
