Six Degrees of Stephen King

I decided to continue my dystopian-film festival today by watching "The Running Man" which I saw in a theater when it came out in the late 80's. The exploding collars from this movie were also used in "Battle Royale." I found it amusing that the movie now contains 2 ex-governors, Schwarzenegger and Ventura (also together in "Predator"). I thought I had heard that the original story was written by Stephen King. I saw who wrote the screenplay, and it wasn't King. It was written by Richard Bachman. Perhaps it was an adaptation of King. A quick check of Wikipedia gave me the answer. Bachman IS King under a pseudonym. Mystery solved. Now I want to read the book because I read that it was totally different than the movie.
