American Gods - The movie?

I loved American Gods and have purchased the book about 20 times because every time I "lend" it out I never get it back (it's THAT good). SO.... I have a hardback hidden away so no one can take it from me and it may be time to re-read it again.

If it were to be made into a movie, I think Shadow should be large but small, black but white... but no matter what when I close my eyes I see a cast of characters as well. I think Shadow will be hard to cast, but Wednesday should be Charles Dance. I also think Paul Bettany would make a greaaatttt (Loki) Low-Key Lyesmith. My husband and I have been debating on Shadow. He read Shadow as a native american, I read shadow as somewhat black and somewhat white... more like a Denzel Washington mixed with Jason Stathom if anyone can find THAT guy... Vinnie Jones should be cast as well someplace - Mr Ibis or Mr Jackal... then there is Bill Nighy... who needs to be in there too...

anyhow... if this movie is made I will be sleeping in line for tickets... Stardust was INCREDIBLE.... and I loveeeee Mirror Mask.. thank you N.G. You are an inspiration.

I agree with the choice for Laura... as Julie Benz, what about (after seeing the Book of Eli) Denzel for Shadow?

So cast choice is a huge part if the wrong people are chosen there are going to be alot of dissapointed people.

I agree with Dominic Purcell as shadow.

I swear if anyone mentions vin desil dwane jhonson again i will shoot them.

And for me its a big no to anthony hopkins as wednesday. Wednesday is not that scary a person and anthony hopkins just doesnt work

Not to mention Anthony Hopkins is already playing Odin in the Thor movie.

Which means, in a small way, some of us will get a small taste of what we want. Personally, I would prefer Jack Nicholson.

they are good for their imagination, but, you need some blackness, christopher nolan for the black universe of the dark night, but without the hollywoody production, something simple but in the same time crazy, maybe Inarritu.
for the actors, I think gerard butler would fit in shadow, or maybe javier Baldem without the spanish accent.for wenesday, hopkins is too old, maybe ed harris.

I read American book several times in my college days , and I enjoyed it just as much the second time around as I did upon the first reading.

In my opinion movies should not be made from the book stories.We regularly read books.Movies should be made by using imagination and creativity.
