You’ve waited, and we’ve certainly written enough stories without official photos, but American Gods is finally here! Straight from Comic-Con 2016, the first trailer for Bryan Fuller’s Neil Gaiman adaptation has arrived, plus bonus Pushing Daisies reunion with Kristin Chenoweth!
For all the amazing cast announcements descending from Starz’s American Gods, the Bryan Fuller series has lacked in one major front: photos! Now, feast your eyes on first looks at Shadow Moon, Mr. Wednesday and even Mad Sweeney in godly official photos from the 2017 premiere.
A few minor filming snags have kept a first look at Starz and Bryan Fuller’s adaptation of American Gods out of our hands a bit longer, but all will be worth the wait, per author Neil Gaiman. Not only is the casting apparently “shit hot,” but Gaiman gets equally colorful describing some of the fantasy drama’s first footage.
It’s taken an eon to finally descend from Olympus, but Starz and Bryan Fuller’s take on Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is finally going before cameras. Starz has announced the official start of production with new cast photos, while stars Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare and more join the roster.
Neil Gaiman has a history of lengthy development to get projects off the ground, like Sandman or American Gods, but perhaps none so long as his first novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. Now, after 26 years, Good Omens will finally get the TV treatment as well, thanks to the late Sir Terry Pratchett.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has been rather meticulous with the casting to date, and now the floodgates may have opened. Not only has Sean Harris joined in the favorite role of Mad Sweeney, but so too has American Gods found its Bilquis and Technical Boy.
The casting of Starz’s Bryan Fuller-adapted American Gods has been slow going, but grows more divine with every addition. After the casting of our Shadow Moon and Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednedsay, Emily Browning has joined American Gods in the role of Laura Moon, a “tricky character” from Neil Gaiman’s original novel.
And in news from the darker corner of DC’s movie universe, we finally have another update on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Sandman film, based on Neil Gaiman’s beloved graphic novel series. Although David Goyer developed the treatment for the film, Gordon-Levitt has been searching for the perfect writer to tackle the screenplay, and it appears that he’s found someone quite familiar with horror.
Bryan Fuller may be busy putting mortals in space, but that hasn’t stopped him from appointing American Gods at home. Following the initial announcement of Shadow Moon, Fuller reveals that Deadwood’s foul-mouthed Ian McShane will take the coveted regular role of Mr. Wednesday, himself among the famed American Gods.
At long last, Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods adaptation finally pulled back the curtain on Shadow Moon last week, ahead of much more casting to come. Adapting Neil Gaiman’s work can be tricky, but now Fuller reveals at least one novel character to play a huge role in Starz’s coming series.
