"Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy" gets the green?

Might one of this decade’s most long-in-development films have finally been given the greenlight? Quite possibly, according to a report on Aint it Cool. "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" seems to have found its penner in the form of Karey Kirkpatrick (James and the Giant Peach and Chicken Run), co-writing the thing with Douglas Adam.
