Telegraph | Arts | Sweetness and fright

"He was definitely a man of the movies," says Hunt. "I'd argue that he was quite deliberately writing scenes that were filmable. You can see this in a lot of children's book writers these days; they're not writing for the book, they're writing for the film. And I think Dahl was very well aware of that. I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't writing Matilda or The BFG for the screen, really."

S F Said's article about Dahl in the telegraph includes several such quotes from Peter Hunt.
