Rumour: David S. Goyer pitching a Sandman movie to Warner Bros.

Has Joseph Gordon-Levitt earmarked for the role

Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic-book series has long been ripe for a big-screen adaptation, and it seems as though David S. Goyer fancies himself as the man to make it happen.

Badass Digest reports that the screenwriter has pitched a Sandman adaptation to Warner Bros, with the studio “very receptive” to his ideas.

The comic book focuses upon a character named Morpheus, who represents the personification of dreams. Having been held captive by a cult for some 70 years, he finally returns to his dream kingdom, only to find it in a state of disarray…

The report goes on to claim that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been earmarked by Goyer for the leading role, casting that should appeal to the studio, particularly in the wake of The Dark Knight Rises.

Goyer also has plenty of credit over at Warners, and although this one is far from a done deal at this stage, don’t be surprised to see a Sandman adaptation officially announced in the new year.

      Anyone know what is happening with HBO's adaptation of American Gods? I think this would be amazing on the small screen, I love this novel and am very intrigued to see how it is adapted?

      American Gods was fantastic. Didn't realise there was a TV series in the pipeline. Sweet.

      A Sandman movie would be ace, but not too keen on the idea od JGL in the role. Might be better with a relatively unknown star.
