The Shining is great, the Wonka film a bit meh imo.

Sapkowski is a dick though. He has made a tidy sum through his book sales, his rights selling to CDPR, and yet more from the book sales from fans of the game. Let's not forget there is also a TV uber-series being mooted (actually more than mooted I think) which will pour more filthy lucre over the fucker.

Stephen King hated the Stanley Kubrick version of The Shining, while Roald Dahl hated the Gene Wilder Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but both are great films.
yep. Having seen the Shining TV show which is more faithful to the book and having given up on the book because it was not very good, I am sorry but Kubrick made a masterpiece from a dunghill of shite. King's idea of scary is laughable compared to what Kubrick delivered on screen

Reports that CDPR have almost reached agreement with Sapkowski to pay him additional royalties, even though they have no legal obligation to do so:

They probably are my favourite dev/publisher.
