At New York Comic-Con this weekend, Amazon dropped the first trailer for their upcoming adaptation of the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett classic, Good Omens. Starring Michael Sheen (TRON: Legacy) and David Tennant (Doctor Who), the series follows a demon and an angel as they work together to stop the apocalypse.
A release date is not currently set, aside from 2019, but if this trailer is any indication, then this should be yet another fantastic adaptation of a Gaiman novel.
Neil Gaiman is set to achieve a life-long dream with his adaptation of Mervyn Peake’s classic fantasy series Gormenghast alongside Akiva Goldsman of FreemantleMedia which is currently working with Gaiman on American Gods. Considered to be one of the finest works of fantasy in the last century alongside J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series, it follows the inhabitants of a castle as vast as a city cut off from the rest of the world.
Two of the books were turned into a four-part BBC miniseries in 2000, that starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Christopher Lee. Since then, Gaiman has expressed interest in adapting the property with the support of Fabian Peake, the author’s son.
