enz Kjellberg aka The Duke of Dunstable, webmaster of the fabulous Douglasadams.se website, has just put online his own set visit report after the visit we did together with fellows Nick Webb and an other fan called Simon Hall. Duke shares his enthusiasm with us, and I’m sure that after reading so many eager movie set visits (including mine), you won’t ever have any doubts about the fact that the movie is in good hands. As Duke says : “It’s tight, it makes sense, it’s a new angle with new scenes and characters, and it’s funny. I am 100 per cent confident, and all these people involved are so dedicated it brings tears to ones eyes.”
Besides the fact that i look like a “a young but balding Robert De Niro” (i take that as a compliment), Duke reveals that we indeed saw the movie trailer a few days before everybody. It looked fabulous on their big flat TV set of course! He also reveals a lot of interesting bits like the “Vogon arse print in a special “throne”,… That one is also quite good : “I felt warm to discover that a new item invented by Douglas and which I have been talking about earlier is indeed still in the script, and not only that; it plays quite an essential part”. Indeed, even if he can’t talk much more about it, Mr Duke has been really a prophesier on this one. And it is a great concept.
Of course, you would still complain about the obvious fact that we can’t give you a lot of details about the movie, but well, it would spoil the suprise, wouldn’t it?
