Oh god, no. Why did they start that press release with the words 'Spice World writer'? That's NOT a good thing! I'm moaning about Eoin Colfer doing the new Hitchhiker's book and he's a really good writer - congratulations Colfer, you are now off the hook. If the best thing they could come up on his CV was one of the worst major movies of all time, well then, I don't have much confidence.
EDIT: Looking him up, apparently he's written for Red Dwarf. He wrote what is probably the best episode of Series VII, Blue (the one with the singing Rimmer munchkins). I might let him off for Spice World, as a struggling writer he probably hoped it would get him a bit of recognition.
