Terry Gilliam's Good Omens -- and Bad

by | July 14, 2006 | Comments

Terry Gilliam is hopping soapbox to soapbox, mouth at full throttle now that "Tideland" is finally getting released (in the UK, anyway). In recent interviews he’s mentioned that his movie of "Good Omens" is very much moving forward again, with Stephen Evans ("Confessions of a Dangerous Mind") now producing.

The production is pencilled in for this Winter, and that actually seems pretty likely, but as Johnny Depp won’t be available until next summer, he’s now off the project.

"Good Omens" will be an adaptation of the genuinely laugh-out-loud Apocalypse comedy by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. If you haven’t read it, go support your local library.
