My research focuses on the film script for/from the novel War and Peace.

Which variant - for or from - is correct? I found both on Google books and Corpus search, but I don't know if both are grammatically correct/mean the same. Thank you in advance for your help!

    It depends on what you want to express:

    1. My research focuses on the film script for the novel War and Peace. -> My research focuses on the film script that was used to film the novel War and Peace.
    2. My research focuses on the film script from the novel War and Peace. -> My research focuses on the film script that was adapted from/based upon/taken from/ the novel War and Peace.
