David Tennant and Michael Sheen to star in Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens

Well, this is brilliant casting. Michael Sheen and David Tennant will star in Amazon’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s novel Good Omens.

Good Omens takes place in 2018 when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon — both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle — are not actually looking forward to the coming war.

Sheen will play Aziraphale and Tennant will play Crowley. How good is that? I love the book and having Tennant and Sheen involved is an excellent start to proceedings.

“I first read Good Omens as a teenager and it’s been one of my favourite stories ever since,” Sheen said in a statement. “To be part of the team entrusted with bringing it alive on screen is a bit of a dream come true to be honest. To work alongside Neil, who I think is one of the greatest storytellers of all time, is incredibly exciting. And, just like the rest of the world, I’m a huge fan of David’s so I relish trying to save it with him.”

Gaiman will adapt the book for the show and serve as showrunner on the Good Omens series. It will consist of six episodes.
