Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” Adaptation Finds A Screenwriter

February 27, 20140 Comments

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has hired BAFTA Award-winning English screenwriter and playwright Jack Thorne to write the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN.

The latest reports state that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Don Jon) will direct and possibly star as the protagonist. He will also co-produce alongside screenwriter David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy).

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.
