Although, I suppose, there's also BLADE RUNNER, which took the title of a completely unrelated novel by Alan Nourse and slapped it into a movie version of Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Yeah, I still don't get why they did that. The term "blade runner" doesn't even fit Deckard's job, since it's not like he uses a blade.
Then there was the TV series of Total Recall, which had more in common with the movie Blade Runner than either the movie version of Total Recall or the book.
I think Total Recall 2070
was meant to be based on both movies, and Dick's ouvre in general. True, it was definitely closer to Blade Runner
, but TR was the more recent, higher-profile movie.
