Is legit. It was announced last year that Terry Gilliam was going to
do a film version of 'Good Omens' once he'd finished his current

(Terry Gilliam, in case the name isn't familiar, directed 'Time
Bandits', 'Brazil', 'The Fisher King', 'Twelve Monkeys', 'Fear and
Loathing in Las Vegas', and a couple of the Monty Python films. He's
been quality-endorsed by both the authors of 'Good Omens'.)

Trouble is, his current movie has been put on hold indefinitely after
a series of mishaps, including one that put a key actor in hospital,
and nobody seems clear on what Gilliam's plans are now.
