Jay Roach won’t be doing HHGttG.

According to Ain’t It Cool News, Austin Powers director Jay Roach has decided not to take on turning the late Douglas Adam’s book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy into a movie. Word had been that the project had already been green-lit and Roach was set to direct, but now word has it that it’s almost green-lit and Roach has bowed out. No word on possible alternative directors.

  1. I certainly hope they make a movie out of it – be nice if they made one for all the DA: HGTHG books!  He’s one of my fave authors – was quite sad to see him go … 🙁

  2. He’s gonna direct that movie, even if I have to kick his ass, chop it up build it back together and place it in the director’s chair. That book is one of the best and funniest in the world and he’s not going to fuck up one of the best and funniest movies.
