David Goyer Adapting Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman”; Joseph Gordon-Levitt To Star?

November 21, 2013

BadassDigest reports that screenwriter David Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel) has pitched Warner Bros. a take on SANDMAN, Neil Gaiman’s critically acclaimed comic, and the studio is interested. Comic book writer Geoff Johns, best known for his work for DC Comics where he has been Chief Creative Officer, is said to be behind Goyer’s version.

The site also adds that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is being considered to star, probably as Morpheus, the lead character. Negotiations are in the very early stages so time will tell if any of this comes to fruition.

Synopsis: “‘The Sandman’ is the universally lauded masterwork following Morpheus, Lord of the Dreaming–a vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who’s ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus’ realm–be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures, or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons.

Upon his escape from an embarrassing captivity at the hands of a mere mortal, Morpheus finds himself at a crossroads, forced to deal with the enormous changes within both himself and his realm. His journey to find his place in a world that’s drastically changed takes him through mythical worlds to retrieve his old heirlooms, the back roads of America for a twisted reunion, and even Hell itself–to receive the dubious honor of picking the next Devil. But he’ll learn his greatest lessons at the hands of his own family, the Endless, who–like him–are walking embodiments of the most influential aspects of existence.
