Neil Gaiman's <em>American Gods</em> Gets Movie Adaptation

Totalfilm reports that British author Neil Gaiman’s best-selling novel American Gods will soon become a feature film.

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.”

American Gods, which won the Hugo and Nebula awards, is a blend of Americana and fantasy; the story follows an ex-convict by the name of Shadow, who finds himself in a journey filled with mythological characters and modern-day godlike figures who only exist because people believe in them.
