Sandman Film Hires Screenwriter

A film based on Neil Gaiman’s beloved Sandman series is in the early stages of development, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in place as producer and director. Now, the film has found its screenwriter.

Jack Thorne, writer/creator of the BAFTA award-winning series The Fades, has been approached by Warner Bros to write the screenplay. I know that sounds like it might not be a done deal yet, but it looks like he really is on board.

There are no details yet on how much of the comic book series it will cover, nor is there a release date, so we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
