Coming in second at the box office last weekend is The Adjustment Bureau (after the children’s animated feature, Rango) based on Philip K. Dick’s short story, “The Adjustment Team.”

The love interest, played by Emily Blunt in the film, was not in the original story. In the L.A. Times blog, Jacket Copy, Carolyn Kellogg explores the differences between the two versions.

Many successful films have been adapted from Dick’s novels and stories, including Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) and Total Recall (a full list is available here).

The story “The Adjustment Team” is available in various anthologies, including the following and as an audio tie-in.
