It’s not a director known for mysteries. It’s a director that remains a mystery because author Neil Gaiman isn’t naming names yet. That’s smart, especially at this early stage of development.

However, Gaiman has confirmed (via Digital Spy) that his novel “American Gods” – which sees a world of mythology transplanted to the United States through the eyes of an ex-con named Shadow – has a cinematographer and a director on board who are ready to develop it.

It’s a director he admires, because Gaiman calls him a genius and mentions several Oscar wins. Those accolades are all well and good, but we’ll all have to hold our breath to see if the people with the money feel so strongly. But it will be worth it. Gaiman’s work is incredible, and seeing another one of his stories on screen is always something to get excited about.
