It’s no dream…the Sandman is coming!
Well, after close to twenty years of failed attempts at bringing the Neil Gaiman created character – Sandman to the screen, it looks like he will finally grace our cinemas with his dream-like presence. Warner Bros have announced that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been brought on as a producer on the planned movie of the endless. He will be joining writers Neil Gaiman and David Goyer on the proposed project.
Sandman was created by Neil Gaiman, with the debut issue releasing November 1988, the series initial run was 75 issues long, with Gaiman writing each and every comic. Various artists portrayed the Endless throughout its run, though Dave McKean stayed with the title to draw every one of its 75 covers. The Sandman – also known as Dream and Morpheus is one of the seven ‘Endless’, which also include his extended family of – Death (our personal favourite of the Endless), Destiny, Desire, Despair, Delirium and Destruction. No date has been set, but just the fact that one of the greatest comic series of all time is getting a film release is good enough for us.
