Writer of the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie interviews himself
I stumbled across this link and found it really interesting. First of all, the idea that the guy who has adapted Douglas Adam's script for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
would interview himself is just perfect, considering the source material (which if you've not read them, I cannot recommend them enough!) Second of all, it's nice to see the honesty and humility with which he approaches adapting Douglas Adams' works for the big-screen. I like how he talks about how "fluid" the universe of Hitchhiker
's is and that it's constantly changing--something this is incredibly obvious if you've read the books, heard the radio shows and seen the BBC TV show (which I have). I know this piece is really to drum up interest for the movie and it certainly has mine. I can't wait to see how it all plays out on the big screen.
