American Gods Season 1 2017

Starz presented a panel on their 2017 series American Gods, based on Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel. Co-showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green were in attendance and screened a trailer first. The clips showed Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) released early from prison for his wife’s funeral. He throws a gold coin on her grave and it sinks into the dirt. His wife, Laura Moon (Emily Browning) returns later in the clip saying, “Who said I died, Bobby?” But not before we see Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) recruit Shadow Moon when they meet on an airplane. Other visual clips include Shadow Moon walking through the forest, and swinging a hammer at a cow’s head in silhouetted slow motion.

After the panel, Fuller and Green spoke to reporters further about the visual aesthetic of American Gods. “Neil Gaiman’s book cracks open a window in a world we wanted to see,” Green said. “We started working with David Slade who is an incredible visionary and just immediately started sketching it out physically and conversationally until we could see the ideas really come to life, so we owe a lot of credit to his lens.”  Read More »

American Gods director

This year, something doesn’t feel quite right with Comic-Con. That’s true for a variety of reasons, but it’s mainly because Hannibal is no longer making appearances. A room packed with the enthusiasm of a large pack of Fannibals was always a treat. Hannibal may be off the air and out of Comic-Con, but that’s not stopping Bryan Fuller from attending. Yesterday, he brought with him his new show, American Gods (co-created by Michael Green).

Below, watch the American Gods trailer.

Good Omens

An adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett‘s Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch has been struggling to get made before the book itself was even published. For over a decade, starting around 1990, director Terry Gilliam tried time and time again to bring Aziraphale and Crowley’s story to the big screen. When Johnny Depp and Robin Williams were attached to star as the angel and demon attempting to prevent the apocalypse, Gilliam still had no luck getting a studio interested.

After all of these years of waiting, though, Gaiman has decided to work on the adaptation himself. Learn more about the Good Omens miniseries below.
