THE SANDMAN Netflix Adaptation Reportedly Casts GAME OF THRONES Alum Gwendoline Christie

Neil Gaiman recently confirmed that Netflix's Sandman series had begun shooting, and some intriguing casting news has now found its way online, as Gwendoline Christie has reportedly joined the production.

The Sandman writer Neil Gaiman recently revealed that production on Netflix's adaptation of his seminal DC Vertigo comic series had kicked off, while hinting that an official cast reveal might be imminent.

While we're still waiting for that announcement, a new report from Discussing Film claims that Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) has joined the production in an undisclosed role.

There are any number of characters Christie could be playing, but if she's been cast as one of the Endless, Desire would be our best guess.

Fellow Brit Tom Sturridge (The Hollow Crown) is believed to be playing the lead role of Morpheus/Sandman, but that has yet to be confirmed by Gaiman, or anyone else involved with the show.

The 11-episode first season of The Sandman is expected to adapt the first arc of the Vertigo comics series, "Preludes and Nocturnes," which finds Dream captured by a black magician and held prisoner for the better part of a century. When he finally escapes, he sets about recovering three very important items, encountering Lucifer, John Constantine, Doctor Destiny, Martian Manhunter and more on his travels.

Gaiman is developing the show along with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. No premiere date has been set.
