Two of my favorite movies are the 80's action/adventure Indiana Jones-Style flicks, Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile. Now I have a question regarding these two movies:
One author that looks really awesome to me is F. Paul Wilson, the dude who writes the Repairman Jack series and has written other archeological action/adventure/thrillers such as The Keep. I haven't read his books yet, but I am certainly planning to.
So the question I have is, since the Stone/Nile movies are archeological action/adventure movies, and the main hero is a mercenary named Jack, could these movies possibly be lightly influenced Wilson's Repairman Jack novels, or is it all just a coincidence.
