Space Odyssey series

I'm currently trying to read my newly acquired Space Odyssey series by Arthur C Clarke.

I've finished 2001 and I'm a third into 2010. I can't understand why on earth he would completely change the setting of the 2nd book (Jupiter instead of Saturn) and use the background/events of the film instead.

In the foreword he does state that the book follows the screen version, but why not just stick to the original story?
