‘Sandman’ film update: Neil Gaiman also working on script, WB ‘pleased’

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been developing the script for a big film adaptation Sandman with creator Neil Gaiman, David Goyer and screenwriter Jack Thorne. According to Goyer, Warner Bros. is quite pleased with their work so far.

Sandman DC Comics photoGoyer recently gave an update on the project in a conversation with Deadline about his hiring of Kevin Turen, who will also be a producer on the film as the president of his film and TV production company Phantom Four.

“I hesitate to definitively say when it might go before the cameras, but the one thing different between other iterations and ours is that Neil Gaiman has been in the room with us and is a vital part of the team. We have a draft Warners is very happy with and we’re moving forward, knock on wood.”

On Tuesday, Gordon-Levitt took part in a Reddit AMA, and also had this to say when someone asked for an update the project.

“Been doing a lot of work with David Goyer and Jack Thorne, working on the screenplay. We’ve been doing our meetings at the DC office, which is a frickin rad place to work. Also just had a great conversation last week with David and Mr. Gaiman. Neil has been extremely big hearted with me, and he’s the one I want to please most.”

Gaiman recently gave a very direct response regarding the status of Sandman: “It’s not a DC Comics film. It’s a Vertigo film. That’s a different slate of films, and a different announcement.”
