Mathew Vaughan Talks About A Sandman TV Series
Vaughan talked about the possibility of a HBO style tv show for Neil Gaimen's Sandman comic with MTV..
Neil Gaiman discussed a Death movie with Guillermo Del Toro last week, but Matthew Vaughn still wants to get his teeth into Sandman.
After talking with Gaimen however, the Kick Ass director is adamant that a movie outing for Morpheus and co would be " Virtually Impossible"...
"I think it would make an amazing HBO series, you know, where you can just really create that world," Vaughn told MTV News. "There's too much to get into an hour and a half, two hours."
"[Neil and I] talked about it," the "Kick-Ass" director said. "I think as a movie it's virtually impossible to make properly."
Well, obviously one movie attempting to cover the whole 75 issue span would be impossible! Why can't they think of this in terms of installments? Is it that difficult to break down the different story arcs? make one movie focusing on issues 1 to 8(its all pretty much wrapped up in a bowe anyway!) and if it works out, make more..just try it for Gods sake! ..ahem. Sorry, a bit sick of waiting for this to happen. But Vaughan's ideas of a TV show is also a great one, its just notoriously hard for these type of comics to make that leap. Preacher failed to, and then even when other Vertigo titles like Human Target have, they have been watered down almost beyond recognition anyway. Then of course, even if something were to happen on that front..or a movie, is Vaughan the right man for the job? He certainly seems to be a big fan..but I would think someone like Del Toro would certainly seem a closer fit to the material.
But between this and the Del Toro talks, its encouraging that things are at least being discussed. Lets hope we hear something concrete on either a film or TV show soon.
