A film adaptation of "3001" would be accused of ripping off Independence Day
Just like the book.
As RJD points out above, Independence Day rips off Childhood's End, just about as badly as you can rip something off. The central plot of giant spaceships orbiting the world's largest cities? There's no way that was an accident.
We need an irony emoticon.
