Joseph Gordon-Levitt Speaks on the Sandman Script


IGN spoke with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who’s producing and co-writing Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of Sandman for a live action film for Warner Bros., in the interview he speaks on the process of writing the script and how hard it has been for others in the past to write it.

“We’re working on it. Sandman is… I love it too, but it’s not an obvious adaptation. They’ve been trying. There’s been drafts of Sandman scripts. I was talking to Neil Gaiman about this and he said, ‘I’ve read so many Sandman scripts!’ For decades! For the last 20 years, there’s been different tries and the reason is Sandman is a series of comics.”

David Goyer, who is a Co-Producer on the film has said Joseph Gordon-Lovitt who may be starring and directing the film, if Don Jon is any indication on how well he is in a film he directs then I hope he does sign up.

I personally feel that he understands comic book movie adaptations so well and I have never heard a director ever explain the difference between adapting a graphic novel and adapting an ongoing series of books and feel like this may very well be one of the best adaptations that will be made.
