Terry Jones adapting Pratchett & Gaiman's Good Omens

This is possibly the most awesomely fantastic thing I have heard for ages. I am so excited right now! Apparently it's a long time away, and only semi-official, but I still CANNOT WAIT. I have been waiting for over a decade for someone to adapt this thing to screen, and it turns out to be one of my favourite people ever.

I thought the same thing when I was hoping for the Terry Gilliam film, but a TV series is possibly even better, because Good Omens is such a detailed book and a feature film would probably have to chop a great deal of it.

If you haven't read Good Omens, read it. Honestly, it's brilliant. Best book ever.

If you have read Good Omens, and also seen Wind In The Willows, just imagine how a Jones-directed Lower Tadfield will be. Perfect.

Now I just can't wait to see who they cast.
