All HHGTTG fans, either rejoice or cry into your towels - the increasingly inaccurately named trilogy is going to be a movie after all. Don't panic, the fine folks at Hammer & Tongs will direct and produce the film - the people behind the 'Coffee and TV'-video for Blur and the 'evolution of man'-video for Fat Boy Slim know a thing or three about irreverent craziness. Karey Kirkpatrick is the screenwriter who will try and channel Douglas and coax the old radio-script into a movie script.
Karey Kirkpatrick has done us all a favor and interviewed himself about this project, answering the question on everyones mind: WHO THE H*#&! ARE YOU AND WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO MUCK AROUND WITH THIS TREASURED PIECE OF LITERATURE, YOU AMERICAN HOLLYWOOD HACK? .
Also see Hitchhikersmovie for info on how the film is progressing.
Coming out of the geek-closet here (who am I kidding, everyone knows about my geek streak) I'll use this opportunity to show off my signed copy of HHGTTG. Douglas Adams even spelled my name right, bless his soul.
