Haven't read that interview with him yet, but his response to Requiem is pretty on-the-nose. Doing the interior for the characters of that film in the span of a novel in less than three weeks is insane. He would've had to live and breath that script, and the prospect of that alone sounds horrendous beyond the fact that he was already busy. It's too bad though because AvPR would be an interesting novelization in terms of a character interiors. That being said, I now realize Ricky would probably be irritating to read. Although the writing of that character might be fun.
