Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is coming to the big screen, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and David Goyer are set to produce the film. Yes, there’s a lot of yay happening in that sentence.

I think it will be tricky to capture a solid portrayal of The Sandman in a single film, but if Gaiman helps out as a consultant or something, I feel okay about the decision. Though, if I’m going to be honest, I’d rather see a movie focusing on Death. I imagine she will at least make an appearance.
As far as who will play Morpheus? Gordon-Levitt may star as the protagonist and also direct the movie. That’s a lot of hats.
