Joseph Gordon-Levitt is working with “The Dark Knight Trilogy” creative team to adapt Neil Gaiman’s "Sandman"
During an interview with Drew Taylor of moviefone.com, Joseph Gordon-Levitt discussed the work he is doing to adapt Neil Gaiman's Sandman to the big screen:
So where are you with “Sandman” right now?
Right now we’re working on a script. It’s me and [David S.] Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It’s a really cool team of people. It’s a lot of the same people who worked on the [Christopher] Nolan “Batman" movies. It’s really exciting. There’s not a script yet, we’re still kind of working it out because it’s such a complicated adaptation because "Sandman" wasn’t written as novels…
…”Sandman” is 75 episodic issues. There’s a reason people have been trying and failing to adapt “Sandman” for the past 20 years.
