If I die before I wake, I pray the lord my soul to take…..
Fan’s of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman rejoice, the movie that you thought was never going to get made is actually going to happen. Reports began to surface earlier today that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had teamed up with writer David Goyer to finally adapt the Sandman comics into a movie for WB(Gordon-Levitt has also since confirmed on his Twitter account his involvement with the project). Sandman has long been rumored to be one of the comic properties that has been stuck in the abyss known as developmental Hell, so it’s very exciting to see this one finally look as though it’s getting the green light. Gordon-Levitt is believed to not only star in the film, but also set to direct. He recently made his directorial debut with a WPR favorite, Don Jon.
The Sandman comic’s official synopsis:

There are seven brothers and sisters who have been since the beginning of time, the Endless. They are Destiny, Death, Dream, Desire, Despair, Delirium who was once Delight, and Destruction who turned his back on his duties. Their names describe their function and the realms that they are in charge of. Several years ago, a coven of wizards attempted to end death by taking Death captive, but captured Dream instead. When he finally escapes he must face the changes that have gone on in his realm, and the changes in himself.

Some suggested reading for Sandman:

Vertigo Essentials The Sandman #1

Sandman Vol. 01 TPB Preludes And Nocturnes (New Edition)
