Just a thought. Wouldn't it be great if Terry Gilliam took over the HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy project? I've always thought the Douglas Adams' hilarious book would be Terry Gilliams ultimate project.

You ain't kidding! This would indeed be a match made in cinematic heaven. I'm guessing he'd ask for a budget of about $229 million bucks...and still go over budget.

He's already working on Terry Pratchett's and Neil Gaiman's book "Good Omens". While the book isn't simmilar to Adams' HHGTG, Pratchett has often been compared to Adams. I've read "Good Omens" a few times, as well as everything else done by Gaiman and Pratchett, and am really glad that Gilliam is working on this project. He's the only director that I can think of that will be able to capture the humor in the book.

I would absolutely love that. Hitchhiker is my favorite book of all time. Gilliam is in my top 5 directors. I don't know if this film is really filmable. It's way too abstract. I couldn't think of a better director to try it though.
