That is why I really try not to watch a movie before I read the book that it is based on, and that I am really interrested in reading. It is really hard not to visualize the actor and what the actor was doing in the movie whilst reading the novel. I hadn't watched the movie First Knight since the 80's (or close thereabouts, can't remember when it came out...long time ago anyways) so it no longer came to mind when I read the book. If this is the same for you, I say go ahead and read the novel, EC won't let you down. But if the movie is still fresh in mind, you just might want to wait abit...or alot!
I am not 100% sure, but I think you will find that EC was contracted to write the movie of the book, not the other way around.
