} Well now supplicant, as ever, I'm going to be brutally honest with you.
} In no way at all are Hollywood going to 'Americanise' the plot or the
} script, but are going to keep as close to the original. But Arthur is
} going to be played by Halle Berry, as she's a big crowd puller at the
} moment. Unfortunately, due to her fees and demands, Zaphod is only
} going to have 1 head and half an arm. Neither are there going to be any
} shots from space, as it has been deemed 'tacky' after George Lucas
} ruined it with computerised sfx. To be fair, Ford Prefect remains
} pretty much the same, but he no longer works for the Guide. He is now a
} journalist for a galaxy-wide newspaper firm. And he can fly.
} Marvin, the Paranoid Android, after the success of the radiohead song,
} is now going to be in counselling, to help overcome his problems, and
} will eventually save the day. The producers just didn't feel right
} portraying a major character as a depressant, and want to be fair.
} Slartibartfast is now to be portrayed by Sir Ian McKellan, and will
} remain almost exactly the same, but the mice are now going to be
} Hobbits. Finally, for equality purposes, Trillian's a lesbian.
} Hope this didn't spoil anything, and I'll see you at the premier.
} P.S., the Restaurant at the end of the universe. It's a McDonalds.
} You owe the oracle a Vietnam movie where the Brits come in to help the
} Americans, and win.
