American Gods: The Motion Picture

American Gods

You know I was just talking the other day about the fact that Neil Gaiman has always said that he would only ever make an American Gods film if it was perfect. Well, according to the folks over at Paste Magazine, “perfect” has just gotten a little bit more attainable:

Many details are still unknown, but Gaiman says, “There is one cinematographer and director on board who has many, many Oscars and is, I think, a genius…I love the fact that he fell in love with this about six or seven years ago and has not given up and just kept coming back and coming back.”

Now, we’ve talked a great deal about how wonderful we think American Gods is and why we think that, and all of that still stands. But what’s best about this news is that it’s coming to light just a two and a half months before the release of the 10th Anniversary Edition, an edition which will have a new introduction, the Author’s Preferred Text (previously only available in the lushly bound and printed edition from the sadly now-defunct Hill House Publishers), and a “bonus scene.” In other words, a must-have, for any Gaiman fan. In even more other words, Perfect Timing.

Hopefully we’ll get more news, soon, in regards to who this epic Director is (I have my speculations), and hopefully some notes about casting. We’ll keep you updated as the information rolls in.
