The adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s classic story Sandman has been under way for a while. Yet, there haven’t been much updates, especially in light of DC’s other movies. But now, courtesy of the star of the movie Joseph Gordon-Levitt, we have some news.

In a Reddit AMA, JGL said the following about the movie:

“Been doing a lot of work with David Goyer and Jack Thorne, working on the screenplay. We’ve been doing our meetings at the DC office, which is a frickin rad place to work. Also just had a great conversation last week with David and Mr. Gaiman. Neil has been extremely big hearted with me, and he’s the one I want to please most.”

That’s not all though, David S. Goyer, who’s helping write the script, also gave a small update:

“I hesitate to definitively say when it might go before the cameras, but the one thing different between other iterations and ours is that Neil Gaiman has been in the room with us and is a vital part of the team. We have a draft Warners is very happy with and we’re moving forward, knock on wood.”

So it’s still happening, just not at the pace many might want. However, with these three and more working to make this a reality, let’s give them some time to make it epic.
