HBO is so confident that Game of Thrones is going to be successful it’s already discussing a second season before the first episode has even aired. Now the network is eyeing a new book to develop into a series: the fabulous American Gods, written by Neil Gaiman.
And the series would be brought to you by … Tom Hanks.
To be more precise, Playtone, Tom Hanks’ production company, would be developing American Gods for the small screen. (Previous Playtone productions for HBO include Big Love, John Adams, Band of Brothers and From the Earth to the Moon).
