The earliest attempts stretch back all the way to the 1990s while the most recent try from New Line Cinema just happened a few years ago. Now, in the wake of the shuttering of the Vertigo arm at DC Comics, a new deal has sprouted to create a Sandman TV series between Netflix and Warner Bros. Television. Read More »

good omens review

Filmmakers have been trying to adapt Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s novel Good Omens for decades. While Pratchett is no longer with us, Gaiman is finally doing it himself and the result is a six-episode miniseries. 

In the series, angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) are friends who enjoy Earth quite a bit. So when the antichrist comes of age and begins kickstarting the apocalypse, Crowley and Aziraphale work to prevent it, even though both Heaven and Hell want it to happen.

Gaiman spoke with /Film outside a room at the Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles. He revealed how much of Good Omens was inspired by director Terry Gilliam’s development work and how he decided what still had to be cut from the book. We also spoke about his upcoming reboot of Jim Henson’s The Storyteller. Good Omens premieres Friday, May 31 on Amazon.

And while all of those are present in Good Omens, Amazon’s upcoming fantasy-comedy series based on the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel of the same name is going to introduce all of those things with a twinkle in its eye. That’s including the Antichrist at the center of this whole end-of-the-earth thing, who happens to be an angelic-looking 11-year-old boy who only dreams of spaceships and hell.
