Neil Gaiman's Lips Are Sealed On Top Secret Anansi Boys Project

It doesn't matter what they say, in the jealous games people play-ay-ay-ay.

Neil Gaiman's lips are sealed about an upcoming project involving Anansi Boys, his 2005 novel that served as a sort-of-sequel to American Gods, now a hit Starz television show. Anansi Boys follows the adventures of the two sons of African spider-themed trickster god, the titular Anansi: Fat Charlie and Spider.

So what is Gaiman working on? Well, he won't tell us. But he's working on something! Gaiman revealed that there is a project yet to be revealed in the course of a Twitter conversation:

So what could it be? A sequel? A movie adaptation? A TV show? A comic book?!

A previous BBC TV adaptation was planned in 2014, but Wikipedia claims plans were scuttled, with the idea to be folded into American Gods. Gaiman has also previously claimed to have written and submitted a movie script to a Hollywood producer all the way back in 2010. Could that production finally be moving along?

Sadly, thanks to Gaiman's serious medical condition, Labia Obsignatæ, we have no idea… yet. Hopefully, Gaiman gets the medical treatment he needs so we can learn all about this exciting new project.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
