Neil Gaiman has revealed that a film adaptation of his book American Gods is in the works.
The novel, first published in 2001, takes place in a world in which gods and mythological creatures exist.
In a recent interview, Gaiman exclusively revealed to DS that a director “who has many, many Oscars” is already on board the project.
“I’m going to be having a meeting in LA with the people that the film rights have been sold to,” he confirmed. “I’m going to be… talking to them, find out where they’re going and if there’s any way that I can help.”
He also described the unnamed director attached to the film as “a genius”.
“He fell in love with this [novel] about six or seven years ago and has not given up,” explained the writer.

Hey, I was wondering if you'd read or heard of the Chronicles of the Kencyrath series, I'd like to know your thoughts on it. And if you haven't read them, then I heartily recommend them ::is on a reccing spree::
Also, I got interested on the Bartimaeus Trilogy thanks to you, so thanks! <3
Nope, but I’ll jot it down to my to-read list. Thanks for the rec! :D
Omg, I got MY MOTHER SHE KILLED ME, MY FATHER HE ATE ME recently too! I saw that Neil Gaiman had written something, so I was like "OMFGINEEDTHIS!!!"
You mentioned that you like fairytale retellings. Which ones would you reccomend for a fellow fairytale retelling fanatic?
IKR, that’s my exact reaction too! :))
The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor (I’m not done with it, but it’s great so far), the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire, Beastly by Alex Flinn (nothing so heavy here, it’s fine and cute for the most part). :)
I've been following you for quite some time already and I think you're the perfect person I should ask. My friend will be having her debut before March ends and wee, I 'm one of her symbolic gifts. We've been friends when we both found out our love for books. So I decided to give her a book. The problem is, I don't know what book is perfect for her that she haven't read yet. Could you suggest any book she might like?
Hello! Sorry for the late response! :’( I’m not sure if your friend already celebrated her debut, but I’ll answer anyway. What kind of books does she actually like? I think of suggesting chic lit, but I’m not a fan so I’ll just recommend the ones I like.
I Am an Emotional Creature by Eve Ensler. It’s a perfect read for any girl. :) The Hunger Games trilogy would be fine, I think. Even those who are not into its genre liked the books. Or you may choose from John Green’s books—try Looking for Alaska. They’re all awesome! :))
Just curious, do you "ship" Marius with Eponine or Cosette? Personally, I like Eponine with Montparnasse. :))
I may be a bit biased here because I loved Eponine both in the musical (Lea Salonga is such a goddess) and in the book (the gritty portrayal is priceless!). Hands down, I’m a Marius x Eponine shipper. Though of course, I think I’ll ship ‘Ponine with pretty much anyone else just because my fangirl heart don’t want her to end up forever alone….which we all know she did…
heyyyy really glad i came across your blog :D it's oober cute &i am also an avid reader so i can relate to a lot of your posts~
question. how do you feel about the whole e-reader phenomenon?
i must say i think they're very practical but there's something about holding the actual book in my hand that cant be replaced :p
Thanks peachyykeen! :D
I think it’s alright, it can’t be helped anyway. And I agree with you—there’s nothing like reading the actual book in your hand. :)
I read your bof fan fics and oh I'm already red as a tomato here! i hope you'll continue woo bin and yi jung's story. oh please please!!!! :)) and i wish you'll make a ji hoo fan fic as well. others say bof is overrated. maybe, sometimes girls (i'm one of them. haha) tend to overreact about the drama but thundering turtles! the story really tugs the 'girls' in us. (pardon the uber fan girl moment)
anyway, you know what, we have the same say about the Mockingjay. I loved the series though there are flaws in the writing style. And the ending, like what you've said, wasn't tied neatly. Bitin! but I still loved it anyway. haha.
hope you're doing well with your thesis! :D ♥
I’m currently on hiatus, but I’ll certainly go back to my unfinished fics when I have the time. :) Ooh yeah, some overzealous fangirls really do make BOF overrated, but if you think about it the Korean BOF puts a lot of spins and back stories to the original Hana Yori Dango storyline. It’s much more alive and engaging, that’s why I like it more than the other live action versions. :D
Sorry if I haven’t posted for a while! I’m currently busy with our thesis and other school stuff. Hopefully after this month, I’ve already graduated I’ll go back to posting more. I miss Tumblring so much! :))
Anyway, to those who’ve just followed me, here are my book and story reviews. I try to review everything I read, but time isn’t always on my side lol. Happy reading! :D
Pardon my French, but SHIT, you have a beautifully demented mind.
Talking about your Imaginaccion stories here. Your desperate/crazy/vain/gay serial killers and lesbian poets, they all rock! Also your poems. The whole folio is amazing, congratulations! \m/
Thank you very much! Love that you love Imagi. :))
