    Re: Sandman (2016)

    I'm down with Levitt and Sandman is one of my all-time favourite comic books so of course I'm in on this. I'm just not sure how he's going to translate something as detailed and layered into a film format, so I'm looking forward to the first trailer when it shows up sometime next year.

    I have yet to read Sandman though I hear it's very impressive. I'll be checking it out shortly. Really like JGL though, and I'm excited about his involvement with such a beloved comic property.

    I remember hearing about the film in production months ago, and I saw JGL as the main character and I'm all in. From what I've on the character is he playing, he's going to real badass type of character that borders the line between good and evil.

    It's been a while since I read the Sandman books... Might have to pick them up again. I think I got up to book four before I stopped reading for no real reason. I think I still have them all in storage somewhere. Definitely an interesting read and well worth checking out if you've never read them though.

    Love me some JGL, always have, so I'm on board for this one.

    RE: SANDMAN

    So, as you might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, a while back, David Goyer and I made a producing deal with Warner Brothers to develop a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN. Neil himself came on as an executive producer, we hired the excellent screenwriter, Jack Thorne, and we started in on the ambitious task of adapting one of the most beloved and boundary-pushing titles in the world of comics. I was pleased with the progress we were making, even though we still had quite a ways to go.
    Recently, as you also might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, the sorta "ownership" (for lack of a better term) of the Sandman material changed hands when Warner Brothers shifted the entire catalogue of Vertigo comics (an imprint of DC) to their subsidiary, New Line. And a few months ago, I came to realize that the folks at New Line and I just don't see eye to eye on what makes Sandman special, and what a film adaptation could/should be. So unfortunately, I decided to remove myself from the project. I wish nothing but the best for the team moving forward.
    I'd like to thank all the great people I've had the opportunity to work with on this one. I've had a blast with and learned a ton from David and Jack. Niija Kuykendall, Greg Silverman, and everyone at Warner Brothers have been fantastic, as have Geoff Johns and everyone at DC. And it's been a particular privilege as well as a rocking good time getting to know Mr. Gaiman, whose generous insights and masterful work have certainly convinced me that the Lord of Dreams and the Prince of Stories are one and the same Endless pattern.
    So this was posted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt on facebook, and twitter. So shitty news no more JGL involment in this movie.

    This truly sucks, I like JGL I thought he could of been perfect for this role. We need more Anti-heroes, sucks this movie might be on the back burner for awhile now.
