Name the writer whose works have inspired over 140 film and TV adaptations, not including the numerous biopics about his own life. (hint that could be a red herring: you have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and you will atone)...

My first instinct is to say Stephen King, but I'm thinking that William Shakespeare is probably more correct.

Not Charles Dickens, and no, not Alan Smithee The 140-plus adaptations of this writer's works come from novels, short stories, poetry and plays....but the biopics are probably more well-known than any of the 140 others ....I think because in many ways the writer's personal and professional life was more interesting than the work itself...not that the work isn't any good..the work is brilliant

I posted my answer before right around the time Bife posted. Sorry. OSCAR WILDE IS CORRECT... Bife wins. The clue from NETWORK is that's the line that Ned Beatty yells at Peter Finch. Finch famously played Oscar Wilde in one of the better film versions of Wilde's life (and trial)

Cool

Struggling for a follow up though.

Okay, here goes, should be easy enough.

Which Razzie-award winning () Hollywood director studied at the University of Leiden?

I'm guessing Paul Verhoven??? Leiden sounds like it's in Holland
