No. He wrote the original version of the movie script before he died, and had to make changes to it, from both the radio play and the book. He was hoping for a film version for years. There was an article on NTL yesterday about it.

Adams knew that it needed major alterations from the book to successfully make it onto the big screen.

I'll see if I can find the article somewhere. He also famously gave his agent a list of 32 phone numbers, so he could be contacted when a studio wanted to make a film. He told his agent "If I don't hear from you, I'll know that you weren't trying your very hardest to get in touch" (or something along those lines).


Cheers,
