The Hollywood Afterlife of Philip K. Dick

Paycheck, in theaters Dec. 25, is the seventh sci-fi movie based on the bizarre, reality-twisting books and stories by Philip K. Dick. The troubled author died in 1982, before seeing Hollywood turn his work into films such as Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report. Pat Dowell reports.
