Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in and direct Neil Gaiman’s Sandman

December 17th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Deadline is reporting Joseph Gordon-Levitt is negotiating with Warner Bros. not only to star in a big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, but is planning to direct as well. David Goyer will pen the screenplay.

Sandman, which launched DC Comic’s Vertigo imprint, ran for 75 issues beginning in 1989. Gaiman’s worlds-within-worlds weaved an episodic anthology, focusing on the allegorical character of Dream and his brothers and sisters, known as the Endless (Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny).

Gordon-Levitt made his directorial debut earlier this year with Don Jon.
