Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods is set to be made into a movie.

The British author has revealed that the rights to the novel have been sold and a top secret director has boarded the project.

Though no details beyond that are known, Gaiman is clearly very excited that one of his most celebrated works is to get the film treatment.

“There is one cinematographer and director on board,” he says, “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.”

Released in 2001, American Gods follows ex-con Shadow, who travels through modern day America and faces numerous mythological creatures on his way.
