David S. Goyer Says Sandman Will Hopefully Go into Production Next Year


David S. Goyer who is serving as Producer on the film Sandman was speaking with Collider earlier today about his STARZ series Da Vinci’s Demons and during the interview got into a bit about the status of Sandman, confirming that Sandman and all the Vertigo Comics films will be going under New Line Cinema, as well as that Sandman will hopefully go into production next year.

We’re just about to do a new draft. All of the Vertigo properties ported over to New Line a few months ago. There was a decision from the higher-ups that New Line would focus on the Vertigo properties and Warner Bros would focus on the DC properties. So we’re just starting a re-write with a really fantastic writer that fans of your site will enjoy that’s coming aboard, but I can’t quite announce it yet.

I think that the Vertigo properties are a bit more quirky and off-center than kind of the mainstream superhero stuff at Warners. But I understand the decision because we’re not having to fight for release dates with the Vertigo stuff like we would have been having to do over at Warner Bros. But I feel confident that film will go into production hopefully next year.
