Never let me go to Coma Island

One of the books by British-Japanese author Kazuo Ishiguro, who moved to England with his parents at age 5, is Never Let Me Go. The story is similar to the Ewan McGregor film The Island. Both, in turn, are similar to the 1978 thriller Coma, starring Geneviève Bujold and based on the novel by Robin Cook.

Now that the whole "harvest organs from the healthy against their will" theme has been played out, someone needs to add an interesting twist before churning out another version. The idea of harvesting from clones (who don't know they're clones) instead of people intentionally put into a coma was the latest twist. What will be the next?
