Update: Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and American Gods adaptations

March 10, 2013

Recently in an interview with Chuck Lorre at SXSW, author Neil Gaiman touched upon two of his books being adapted for either the big screen or television.  Below are some highlights from the interview.

– Neil says he feels like it’s 1996 again as he’s writing new Sandman and Neverwhere.

– On American Gods, Gaiman said that HBO is waiting on him to finish up a third draft of the pilot. This project has been in development for two years now and while it’d be nice if it were further along, at least they’re taking their time to get it just right.

– As far as rumors of a Sandman television show or movie are concerned, Gaiman stated that “Sandman is completely and utterly owned by DC, which is [essentially] Warner Bros. [Sandman] may go over to the big screen or stay with Warner Television. They don’t tell me”. Chuck Lorre chimed in and said that he worked there and maybe he should talk to someone as Sandman deserved to be on a screen, to which Gaiman agreed.

Here’s hoping sooner rather than later.
