that'd be good casting!

I don't know if this thing will ever happen tho . probably not any time soon

The CORRECT way to adapt Sandman is by putting it on HBO

JGL did a AMA on Reddit and answered some Sandman questions.

Quote:
Question: Thanks for taking your time to answer our questions.
Two quick questions on your Sandman adaptation:
What would you say is the most difficult aspect of translating Sandman to the big screen?
Given the large scope and episodic nature of would you say it is best suited for a big screen adaptation, or would a small screen adaptation fit the bill better?

Answer: I think a big screen adaptation is a better idea and here's why. If you did the episodic version, I think it could very well end up as a not-as-good-version of what is already brilliant in the comics. But by reworking the material into a big movie, Gaiman's brilliant characters and ideas get to take shape in a way they never have before. Also, I think Sandman deserves to look absolutely mind-blowingly awesome, just on a visual level, and as cinematic as some tv shows are becoming these days, they still can't compete with big movies visually, just because they can't afford to.
Quote:
Question: Hey JGL! Glad to see you return and I had two long winded-ish questions for you.
First, I’m a huge fan of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman saga and cannot wait to see how you get this project to the masses. Besides a lack of fist fights, is there anything about your adaptation you can share? I know you got a ways to go to get to A Game of You, but to me it seems like that story in particular would be a nightmare to successfully pitch to the studio (main franchise character basically just has a cameo, female lead, trans issues, etc.). Either way, you can bet I’ll be rooting for you the whole way on that massive undertaking.

Answer:
Yeah, there's tons of little brilliant moments throughout the series, and we certainly can't incorporate all of them. We are using a whole bunch of specifics straight from the comics, but of course, we're also having to do a certain amount of invention, and in between that, there's tons of re-appropriating, re-contextualizing, combining, consolidating, and all manner of things that literalists might not like. But what we try to be completely faithful about is the overall sentiment: that Dreams and Stories and Magic are actually all the same thing, and that they're real, and that they're powerful.

That report seemingly confirms what we've all known about:

JGL to direct, produce, and star in Sandman.

David Goyer gives an update on the 'Sandman' movie http://trib.al/LY3rsjg

Quote:
Weíre 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 weíre just starting a re-write with a really fantastic writer that fans of your site will enjoy thatís coming aboard, but I canít 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 weíre 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.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Sandman' movie finds its writer http://thr.cm/WwAapv

Quote:
Horror writer Eric Heisserer has been tapped to pen Sandman, New Lineís adaptation of the acclaimed DC/Vertigo comic book that has Joseph Gordon-Levitt on board as director and star.


David Goyer wrote the treatment and a search was conducted to ensnare a scribe to tackle the ambitious translation in what New Line hopes will be a trilogy.
Sandman tells the tale of Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams. The comic book began in the horror realm but quickly made its mark in fantasy and mythology as Neil Gaiman, the author of the series, introduced the Endless, a group of powerful brothers and sisters that includes Destiny, Death, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium (as well as Dream).
The book helped establish DC's Vertigo imprint, won several awards, and its success crossed over into the mainstream.
Heisserer established horror movie credentials with remakes of A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Thing as well as working on Final Destination 5.
He has two horror thrillers awaiting release from New Line: The Conjuring 2, whose script he worked on, and Lights Out, which he wrote and co-produced. The latter opens July 22.


Heisserer also wrote the script for The Story of Your Life, a sci-fi drama starring Amy Adams that is directorís Denis Villeneuveís follow-up to his acclaimed drug cartel drama Sicario.

Goyer already said that the movie has a writer last year. So this is probably just announcing who it is.

Yep but it's hard to mess up that book. Also it went through a new rewrite when Denis and Amy came on board back in 2014.

RE: SANDMAN
So, as you might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, a while back, David Goyer and I made a producing deal with Warner Brothers to develop a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN. Neil himself came on as an executive producer, we hired the excellent screenwriter, Jack Thorne, and we started in on the ambitious task of adapting one of the most beloved and boundary-pushing titles in the world of comics. I was pleased with the progress we were making, even though we still had quite a ways to go.
Recently, as you also might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, the sorta "ownership" (for lack of a better term) of the Sandman material changed hands when Warner Brothers shifted the entire catalogue of Vertigo comics (an imprint of DC) to their subsidiary, New Line. And a few months ago, I came to realize that the folks at New Line and I just don't see eye to eye on what makes Sandman special, and what a film adaptation could/should be. So unfortunately, I decided to remove myself from the project. I wish nothing but the best for the team moving forward.
I'd like to thank all the great people I've had the opportunity to work with on this one. I've had a blast with and learned a ton from David and Jack. Niija Kuykendall, Greg Silverman, and everyone at Warner Brothers have been fantastic, as have Geoff Johns and everyone at DC. And it's been a particular privilege as well as a rocking good time getting to know Mr. Gaiman, whose generous insights and masterful work have certainly convinced me that the Lord of Dreams and the Prince of Stories are one and the same Endless pattern.

Now that does sound worrying, but maybe New Line had a better thoughts? Who knows. Wonder which side Neil Gaiman would pick.

My guess is New Line wanted more of a horror tone based on the writer they chose and JGL seemed to be more into the mythology of the series. Can't say I'm looking forward to the project now.

Neil Gaiman personally had the movie shut down back in the nineties after he found out what Jon Peters did to the script. If Neil is still on board with than so am I.
