I asked Terry Gilliam how the Good Omens movie was going. His reply?

I'll warn you in advance that we created a very different climax.
And we dropped favorite characters. We added some scenes involving
cattle drives in the Old West and song and dance sequences from our
favorite Bollywood films. We also tried to make the Metratron more
Jewish for the sake of the financiers. Woody Allen would be
perfect...or maybe Mel Brooks. Then there is the snuff movie that
Crowley is producing which we get to see in utterly graphic detail...we
thought it would make him more active in believable evil. And we
eliminated most of the comedy. I felt it held the book back from being
the "great and profound work" which we hope the film will be.

So I don't think we're going to have anything to worry about....
