Oscar-Winning Director to Helm Neil Gaiman's "American Gods"

Posted: March 28th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Oscar-Winning Director to Helm Neil GaimanSubmit Comment
Neil Gaiman just revealed that film rights to his "American Gods" novel have been sold just recently, and the author is planning to meet the director to see if he can help with the movie.

When asked who purchased the rights, Gaiman replied: "There is one cinematographer and director on board, who has many, many Oscars and is 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."

Released in 2001, "American Gods" tells the story of a ex-convict and his navigation through a present-day America secretly filled with all the mythological gods and monsters of ancient history, long since immigrated to the United States.

America is already filled with people who believe in a mythological God and that nut job Jesus guy who was probably dehydrated and hallucinating through his whole life, he should of stuck to the carpentry he could of nailed his own finger to some wood.

Such a great book. Hopefully they can do a better adaptation than they did with Stardust or Neverwhere.

"America is already filled with people who believe in a mythological God and that nut job Jesus guy who was probably dehydrated and hallucinating through his whole life, he should of stuck to the carpentry he could of nailed his own finger to some wood."

Ah, the beautiful irony of all that's human.

Here you had some in-the-desert messiah-stricken wackjob running around like some unarmed idiot paramiltary revolutionary from a Three Stooges short, when he could've been back at his cave building sh*t, and then, the carpenter becomes his own creation, nailed to the wood he should've been nailing, and then he get's sent back to a god (package marked undeliverable, insufficient postage motherf*ckers) who was nailing his mother.

f*ck, they just don't write bestselling fiction like the Bible any more do they? Neil Gaman, here's a f*cking fork, eat your heart out.

So the book isn't about money, food and sex? Shocka of all shockas.

I want a film version of "Only Begotten Daughter". It's a freakish book set in the near future where anti-abortionists burn down a fertility clinic. One embryo miraculously survives and inseminates itself, the girl eventually growing up to be the lesbian messiah... It ends with a live crucifixion on pay-per-view.
or Jose Saramgo's "Gospel According to Christ"... It was a very straightforward novel about all the years of Jesus' development that the new testament glosses over.

Down at the STD clinic getting his pecker looked over by a big fat hairy doctor with lots of sharp, rusty Third World instruments, I bet.

No thanks, Rabid. You and I know the author wasn't trying to write a real book with a real story, they were building a contrived makeshift weapon full of every possbile anti-Christian theme, and all of this for one simple-, narrow-, and single-minded pursuit: pissing off Christians.

It's like making a dish out of every possible non-Kosher food stock and serving it at a world bankers meeting.

Sounds like my kind of book, i love pissing off christians...

f*ck, they just don't write bestselling fiction like the Bible any more do they? Neil Gaman, here's a f*cking fork, eat your heart out.

The good thing about the Bible is it's been written by a number of different whack jobs, each putting they're modern day spin on how they want the world to be. Infinite monkeys can't write Shakespeare but they done well with the bible. I'm still waiting for The Bible 2: The Rise Of Christ. Probably released after the 2011 date.

I just don't get how any one any where can read a book like the bible and base their lives on certain aspects of it, ignore other parts. Argue against scientific fact with "quotes" that have been translated so many times they probably don't even resemble the original text. A wise man once said "Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful."
minkowski writes:
on March 28th, 2011 at 5:15:05 PM

I think the point I was trying to make is that a book such as the one Rabid suggested would never be read by a Christian, and because it's noting more than a makeshift weapon, it would never find itself into mainstream acceptance as anything else, and thus it would never force it's way into the religious purview, so the author has really just wasted his or her time making a book that will do nothing but sing to the atheistic and anti-religious crowd, and as a natural big-picture nihilist, I have to wonder: why the f*ck bother?
rabid writes:
on March 28th, 2011 at 8:21:54 PM

You got the point exactly. My point is that there is a huge market for anti-religious weapons. I revel in it.
But Only Begotten Daughter was no better or worse a story than the one it parodied. It was the exact same story.
minkowski writes:

Well, to be honest, the best way to combat superstition, Rabid, is through enlightened books whereby the author respectfuly dissects the religious person's opinion logically and rationally, thus to convincingly work to erode the religious person's opinion down to the superstitious foolishness it is.

I know, know, coming from me, verbally combative as I am, that sounds agreat deal like hypocrisy, but I did say it was for that author out there, so that gives me an honest out.
rabid writes:
on March 29th, 2011 at 12:37:19 AM

nahhh, the best way to combat religious idiocy is just through sheer ridicule and humiliation.
That or a colliseum full of lions.
