Sandman Live Action Series Being Developed by Neil Gaiman and David Goyer
Morpheus and the rest of the Endless may get another chance at a live action adaptation as news is coming in that there’s a Sandman series being developed by creator Neil Gaiman and writer David S. Goyer.
The series will be coming out on Netflix rather than DC’s DC Universe or Warner’s untitled, upcoming streaming service. This will actually provide Warner with a financial windfall that could help them because Netflix would be pretty much doing all the heavy lifting.
The series will be controlled by Gaiman who wrote the story decades ago and David Goyer, who previously worked with Joseph Gordon Levitt to bring the series to the big screen. Alan Heinberg (Young Avengers, The OC) will be showrunner for this series.
Sandman focuses on Morpheus, aka Dream of the Endless. Dream is one of seven siblings representing the major forces of the universe, the others being Destiny, Death, Destruction, Despair, Desire, and Delirium. After decades spent in captivity, Dream reemerges to find his kingdom, the plane known as the Dreaming, in ruins. He must rebuild and in doing so reexamine his role in the universe
No word yet on the number of episodes or when it would be released.
