Neil Gaiman’s American Gods Could Be Adapted By HBO

Neil Gaiman‘s American Gods could be coming as an HBO series. The cable company is discussing the acquisition of the fantasy novel with Gaiman and his collaborators.

Here’s more from Deadline: “The project was brought to HBO by Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, and it was brought to them by Robert Richardson. The plan is for Richardson and Gaiman to write the pilot together.”

In 2002, American Gods won the Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker awards in the Best Novel category. Last year, American Gods was voted as the title to kick off the One Book, One Twitter program.
