    “Hollywood Reporter” has said that Spyglass Entertainment Group has confirmed that it will film a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie with Buena Vista. Jay Roach will direct, and Douglas Adams will write the screenplay.

    This was also on the SFX network:

    HHGTTG director confirms he wants Carrey for Zaphod

    Jay Roach, director of the mooted Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie, has told fans of the movie it will be a genuine effort from the pen of Douglas Adams.

    Roach, speaking to Popcorn, put fans minds at rest that the production would lose Adams’ unique British humour, saying: “He’s doing the adaptation himself and producing the film too. So it’ll be a Douglas Adams authentic production.”

    He also admitted he was keen to land Jim Carrey as two-headed alien playboy Zaphod Beeblebrox, while Adams was keen to see Hugh Lawrie as last man alive Arthur Dent.

    Hell yeah!
    The old movie, if anyone’s seen it, captured the essence of the Hitchhikerness but cut a lot of parts out…maybe this one will stay more true to the plot…plus I think the old one was made in the 60s…the special effects are enough to give you a heart attack.

    1981, a tad after the 60s. I personally don’t think it needs remaking. A digitally-remastered special edition at most.
