‘Sandman’ News, Updates: Under New Line Cinema; Producer David Goyer Reveals They May Start Filming Next Year

Ever since “Sandman” was introduced in 1989 by Neil Gaiman, Hollywood has been hoping to see Morpheus, a.k.a. into hitting the big screen. In the person of actor Joseph Gordon Levitt, a commitment to the character to be seen in flesh was fulfilled in 2013. Will this movie be also filled with the world of dreams?

This commitment started two years ago, David Goyer will be the one to produce this movie and the script will be penned by Jack Thorne. Time had passed but there was not anything yet close to filming the movie, Gamespot reported. Though Goyer said in an interview that it should start in 2016, it was still uncertain. Meanwhile, DC Comics decided not to let the film be handled by Warner Brothers, but by New Line Cinema. Other Superheroes somehow will stay under Warner Brother’s roof.


Higher management decided that New Line Cinema will distribute Vertigo, while Warner will be on focus with the DC Properties. Because of this new system, David Goyer said that they are just starting a new draft along with the rewrites from really fantastic writers that fans will really be amazed joining aboard, Tech Times reported.

The director also confirmed that Jack Thorne will no longer be part of doing the input. The new writer was not confirmed yet and this probably made fans wonder and gave them hope that Neil Gaiman would also come aboard. Of course, nothing beats the original. Having New Line Cinema for the movie, David Goyer is hoping and is really positive that everything will start next year.


Actor Joseph Gordon Levitt said in an interview that every the movie is going to be a grand, spectacular action film, Gamespot reported.

Between 1989 and 1996, the original “Sandman”  was run, having 75 issues. Stay tuned for updates regarding the confirmed breathtaking release of the film.
