Joseph Gordon-Levitt to direct and star in Neil Gaiman's Sandman

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=112546

From JGL's Twitter: "Ladies and gentlemen, I'm incredibly honored to be working with David Goyer, Warner Bros, and @neilhimself on SANDMAN. #Prelude"


Personally, I think it's very odd to have him direct something of this scale, since he only has one movie under his belt in Don Jon. Definitely interested to see how this pans out though!

As long as Gaiman is involved, this should be good. I would have little faith in a Gaiman-less Sandman movie. Goyer has his strengths, but Sandman's elegiac, surreal style is not one of them.

wonder if they're going to adapt one of the story arcs or do something original.

Re: Joseph Gordon-Levitt to direct and star in Neil Gaiman's Sandman

Lets sum up the seventy 5 comics.

powerless, quest to get his power back, pisses off Satan, Satan in revenge mode tricks dream into killing his son which brings about his own murder by vengeance goddesses while sewing the seeds of his own resurrection.

80 percent of Sandman is an excuse to write about bollocks that was of interest to Neil on any given day, that had almost nearly nothing to do with the character.

Dream is the god of Stories, so it's a comic book about stories.

Well, I guess this means I need to finally buckle down and start reading the series.

Just remember they made up "Fury" post crisis.

Scale? Hm. I wonder if actually the movie will be something more intimate than the Avengers.

The smaller more personal stories in Sandman were always more interesting to me. So, maybe it's not that big in scale...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the few actors that has never disappointed me.

I'd much prefer a television series to a movie. Still, this project has my curiosity based on the people involved.

Re: Joseph Gordon-Levitt to direct and star in Neil Gaiman's Sandman

I'm imaging the reverse of the Wonder Woman thread, where all the misogynists are ranting that the almost chosen, tapped actresses are too tall, or too beefy to be Death.

It's going to be murder.
