Re: Off Topic: Movie Tie-In Editions

For the most part though it's definitely far more common for publishers to simply put out a new edition with the movie poster for the front cover and call it a 'Movie Tie-in Edition', even though the actual text of he book has very rarely been altered in accordance with that. Not saying it can't happen, but it seldom does.
In such cases, there's never any talk of revising the text. You either do a novelization of the movie script OR you reprint the original book with a new cover, but I've never known anyone to revise the original book to fit the movie . . . .
