Jack Thorne To Write SANDMAN For Warner Bros. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Some fans were concerned over Man of Steel scribe David Goyer being involved with Sandman, while others were overjoyed. Regardless of which side of the argument you fell on, it has now been confirmed that Jack Thorne (Skins, This is England) will pen the screenplay...
Deadline reveals that Jack Thorne will write the screenplay for Sandman based on the pitch from David Goyer to Warner Bros and based on the classic Neil Gaiman comic book. Joseph Gordon-Levitt will produce with Goyer, and it's still hoped that he will both star and direct. Gaiman is also set to serve as executive producer. For those of you unfamiliar with Sandman, it is described as follows: "The Sandman series shifts between horror and fantasy, and the central character is Morpheus, the personification of dreams. After being held captive 70 years, Morpheus escapes, gains revenge and rebuilds his crumbling kingdom while trying to adapt to the times." The site adds that it was Goyer who managed to "crack the subject matter" and it could be a new franchise for the studio. How do you guys feel about this news? Sound off below!
