Note from JWR:

Tomorrow is the much anticipated US release date for the quasi-survivalist movie “I Am Legend“, based on the novel of the same name by Richard Matheson. I am curious to see how loyal the movie is to the novel. After having read an early draft of the screenplay (by Mark Protosevich) and having seen the extended version of the promotional trailer, I suspect that it will be a blend of the novel and elements from “The Omega Man” (the 1971 film adaptation starring Charlton Heston.)
