'Sandman' Movie Script Update, Joseph-Gordon Levitt To Direct

Talented actor and director Joseph-Gordon Levitt recently shared some few updates on the movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "Sandman."
British author Neil Gaiman talks to a reporter as he arrives at the premiere of the animated movie "Coraline" in Portland, Oregon February 5, 2009.
In an interview with Moviefone, the actor-director said there is still no script yet for the movie.
"Right now we're working on a script," he said.
"It's me and Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros," he added.
The actor who has appeared in "Looper" and made his directorial debut in "Don John" claimed it would be an exciting experience creating the movie. Apparently, he is collaborating with the people behind the success of the Christopher Nolan directed "Batman" movies.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt added the team is "still kind of working out" on the script since it would reportedly be a challenge adapting "Sandman" into a movie.
According to the actor, the series of books in Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" wasn't written as novels. Unlike Frank Miller's "Sin City," the sequences revolves on a per episode story. It is the same reason why Joseph said many people have failed in their attempts to adapt the 75-episodic issues into a movie for the past 20 years.
However, despite his reported claims of other people's failures, Collider claims the actor sounded optimistic on the off-chance that he would finally be able to make the "Sandman" movie happen. Although the team is "still in the middle" of the adaptation, Joseph thinks they may have the "right ideas."
The 75-episodic issues would also be treated as an entire cinematic universe. The actor confirmed "Sandman" would be made "in terms of a whole world." According to Collider, there is no doubt that Warner Bros. would like to work with the "Sandman" production team in possibly having the first-ever adaptation into a movie franchise.
The Guardian claims "Sandman" catapulted Neil Gaiman into stardom as the graphic series became a phenomenon. It was reported to have even made it under the DC-comics Vertigo lineup along with "Hellblazer" and "Swamp Thing."
According to writer David Barnett, there could only be one possible reason why Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" existed. He said it "has to be because it is great."
