Fans of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles just got some great news, Bryan Fuller (Heroes, Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, American Gods) has just joined the creative team that is working on bringing the series to TV.
The trailer hit today and it left a bloody boot print in its wake. Seriously. They are not skimping on the blood and violence here. It looks like they definitely see American Gods as the New Game of Thrones.
Personally, I’ve been a lot more excited about seeing Neil Gaiman’s American Gods brought to live on screen than Sandman. They are both great, but it’s so much easier to screw up Sandman.
The pilot script will be penned by Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal,” “Pushing Daisies,” “Heroes”) and Michael Green (“The River,” “Kings,” “Heroes”), who will also showrun the series.
The series is expected to be effects-heavy in order to ” do justice to the awe-inspiring power of the divine beings.”
