of the fans seem to find everything out way in advance so it's hard to
keep things a surprise! Slartibartfast and the planet factory are
turning out to be pretty wonderful elements in the film visually but
still very much what you heard in the original series. The Vogon's
destroying Earth is as you heard it but with added mayhem and madness.
I also think our take on Arthur and Ford in the Vogon airlock is a
peach. I suppose the biggest surprise, judging by the amount of
questions that crop up about him, will be how good Mos Def is at
playing Ford and how funny his entrance into the film is.
Added mayhem and madness to the destruction of Planet Earth? Sounds fine to me. I've never read, nor seen, any of HHGG so I'm hoping to be impressed by the film. Oh yeah...you can also read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of the interview if you want too.
