Hitchhiker's film production starts today.
Posted on 19 Apr 2004
The Hitchhiker's Guide movie begins principal photography at Elstree Film Studios today. There is an all new cast, including Warwick Davis (the little chap who played Wicket the Ewok) as Marvin.

The visual effects are being created by Asylum, who do the cute BBC2 logo's (amongst other things) and the whole thing is being directed and produced by Garth Jennings of Hammer and Tongs, who did the Blur - Coffee and TV video.

MJ Simpson has put together an interesting interview with the producer and director. It all looks like an interesting adapation of the book, so I'll be keeping an eye on the production with interest.

In the meantime, I'm eagerly awaiting the Third Radio series, with all the members of the original cast (who are still alive). It has all been recorded, we're just waiting for various legal matters to be sorted out before a Radio 4 broadcast slot can be allocated.

Thanks to MJ Simpson for all his research on this.
