Sandman Film Moves Forward With New Writer

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to direct 'The Sandman'

The film adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s comic The Sandman has a new writer. 

New Line Cinema has hired Eric Heisserer to write the script for the film which Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be directing and starring in. Heisserer has previously written The Conjuring 2, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Lights Out, among others.

The Sandman began its journey to film at Warner Bros., but was switched to New Line as WB decided to focus on its DC adaptations.

The Sandman follows the adventures of Morpheus, the god of dreams, who seeks to rebuild his kingdom after being held captive for 70 years.SuperFable
