It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Warner Bros’ adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s comic series The Sandman. In fact, it’s been a couple years. But if recently revealed rumors are true, a big name is vying for the lead role, and the film is finally headed out of the dream world and into reality.
According to Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, reliable sources have indicated to him that not only is WB is very interested in David Goyer’s take on The Sandman, but that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is interested as well. Apparently he’s looking to play the lead character Morpheus, though we’re going to have to chalk these reports up to rumor at this point.
Even if all of this is true, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time a Sandman adaptation has been on the table. Various different writers and directors have been on board at various stages in the development over the years, so I wouldn’t start getting excited until the cameras start rolling.
Expect more on this one soon!
