FWIW, the upcoming Will Smith movie, "I Am Legend" is based on the sci fi classic of the same name written by Richard Matheson (a science fiction
icon), and published in 1954.
This is the third time the book has been adapted for the screen.
1964-"The Last Man On Earth" starring Vincent Price.
1971-"The Omega Man" starring Charleton Heston
2007-"I Am Legend" starring Will Smith.
That Hollywood recycles good ideas is a given. That they choose to do it three times to "I Am Legend is a testament to the staying power of the
original novel. Read it, you'll like it.
