“Every hour wounds. The last one kills.”
A while a go it was rumored that Neil Gaiman’s fourth prose novel American Gods would be developed into a TV series by HBO (AND that The Rock would be starring in it), but it seems after some production changes the show will be made by Starz.
For those of you who have read the mythical story, you’d know there’s many reasons to be mildly obsessed with the work, meaning: not just anyone can takeover this show. “When you create something like American Gods, which attracts fans and obsessives and people who tattoo quotes from it on themselves or each other, and who all, tattooed or not, just care about it deeply, it’s really important to pick your team carefully: you don’t want to let the fans down, or the people who care and have been casting it online since the dawn of recorded history,” Gaiman said in a statement.
With that, Michael Green (Heros) and Michael Fuller (Hannibal) will be the American Gods lead showrunners, and it’s even been heard Tom Hanks would be supporting the show as well. And how could you not? The ex-con Shadow’s easily one of the greatest book characters ever created, and I’m very eager to see who will play the lead.
