Movie Trivia:
  • The movie was first optioned in 1982 by producers Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck and Michael C. Gross. Douglas Adams wrote three drafts for them per his contract. During this time, Medjuck and Gross were considering Bill Murray or Dan Aykroyd to play Ford Prefect, but then Aykroyd sent them his idea for Ghost Busters (1984) and they did that movie instead.
  • Douglas Adams's head appears as a planet during Slartibartfast's tour of the galaxy.
  • This film was in "Development Hell" for over twenty years. At one point, Douglas Adams insisted it would be made "sometime before the last Trump". Just prior to his death, a deal was almost in place with Jay Roach directing and starring Hugh Laurie (Arthur), Jim Carrey (Zaphod Beeblebrox) and the late Nigel Hawthorne (Slartibartfast).
  • John Malkovich's character, a religious leader, was created especially for the movie by Douglas Adams.
  • This is the ninth version of the "Hitchhiker's Guide". It has previously appeared as a radio series, two record albums, novels, a television series ("The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy" (1981)), a computer game, a stage show, a comic book, a video game (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1984) (VG)) and a towel. (The game version is not, in fact, a video game, but was an Intercom "interactive fiction" {text only} game, plotted/scripted by Douglas Adams, programmed by Steve Meretsky, which has been available to play free on the BBC Radio 4 website since 2005.)
