Netflix Nears Manage Warner Bros. Television For ‘Sandman’ Series
It is anything but a fantasy — Neil Gaiman’s Sandman is at long last coming to TV. After being stuck being developed limbo for decades, Netflix is nearing a deal with Warner Bros. Television for a series order of an adaptation of the popular comic book series from DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman, Gray’s Anatomy) is slated to compose and fill in as showrunner on the series. Gaiman will executive producer nearby David Goyer.
When it was declared that a selection of Vertigo titles were going to New Line, Sandman was originally slated to be a movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt directing and featuring. He exited the feature three years prior after creative differences. The project even returns further when Gaiman said that an adaptation was in progress while at Comic-Con. Gaiman and Goyer were additionally associated with the film adaptation.
When shut, this will be yet another franchise to add to Gaiman’s TV arsenal. He right now has American Gods on Starz as well as the new Amazon series Good Omens. The titular character of Lucifer showed up in The Sandman comics — and both will currently be on Netflix.
Sandman charted a long, poetic story circular arc over its original 75-issue run that followed the adventures of Morpheus, lord of dreams and individual from a pantheon of immortal beings called The Endless who personify certain universal concepts that, alongside dream, incorporates death, desire, destiny, delirium, despair, and destruction.
Netflix declined to comment about the deal.
