It didn’t really sink in that this was even an option until… Well, I suppose just now.
For some reason it didn’t really seem feasible that anyone could do Adams’ novel justice on the screen. But apparently 85% of this screenplay is Adams’ work anyway, so I guess I’m feeling pretty good about it now.
Especially after watching the three trailers. Might I recommend this one?
Three observations based on the trailers:
- Nice solution to the Zaphaod two-head problem.
- That’s almost exactly how I would have done the Vogons.
- As Wired wrote in their most recent issue: The casting of Mos Def as Ford Prefect […] is either inspired or the biggest mistake since Freddie Prinze Jr. in “Scooby-Do”.
