Awesome! He's one of my favorite novelists... I remember wondering if he might do this but generally hearing it was unlikely. But I thought there was a chance, since he novelized the Transformers
movie, so there was a connection there. Cool!
Also, not to read Too much into it, but I think I trust Foster's opinion more than, say, Kevin Smith or some random movie critic. He has taught cinema at UCLA and novelized countless movies both good and bad (including Star Wars and Alien), so I think he knows a good sci-fi flick when he sees one. And yes, I know there's motivation for him to promote the movie since he's writing the book, but I don't think he'd say it was really, really good if he didn't think so; he's not that kind of guy.
