Joseph Gordon-Levitt-Produced SANDMAN Adaptation Recruits Screenwriter Jack Thorne

We have an update on Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the DC/Vertigo title Sandman. According to Deadline, How I Live Now scribe Jack Thorne will write the script, based on Neil Gaiman’s critically acclaimed series. Batman vs. Superman screenwriter David S. Goyer pitched the project  to WB, and will produce alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The plan is for The Dark Knight Rises actor to star in and potentially direct Sandman. Additionally, Gaiman is on board as an executive producer. 
The original story of Sandman focuses on 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.” Stay tuned for more news on the film adaptation as we have it.
