Jack Thorne Set To Write 'Sandman' Script For Warner Bros.
Reported by Outsiders - 2014.02.26
Deadline is reporting that Jack Thorne will be writing the script for Sandman at Warner Bros. on the pitch that David Goyer made for his treatment for the Neil Gaiman comic book classic. Actor and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt is producing with Goyer and is hoping to star and possibly direct the film but a movie of this magnitude would be a considerable step up in scope and scale. Neil Gaiman is executive producer.
'The Sandman series shifts between horror and fantasy, and the central character is Morpheus, the personification of dreams. After being held captive 70 years, Morpheus escapes, gains revenge and rebuilds his crumbling kingdom while trying to adapt to the times.'
