Netflix and Warners developing a Sandman TV series

July 2nd, 2019 by Marc Comments

Ooooooooooh…

You may recall a few years ago New Line tried to get a Sandman movie up and running just at the DC Cinematic Universe was kicking off with Joseph Gordon-Levitt attached but, obviously, it failed to happen.

Now, however, it looks like things are moving forward… albeit towards a smaller screen.

Yes, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman have been picked up by Netflix for a ‘massive financial deal with Warner Bros. Television’ for a live-action series.

Wonder Woman’s Allan Heinberg will write and be show runner and the show has been a straight to series pickup.

This is a big deal and Sandman is a complex, dark and intriguing tale and with several other potentially massive characters – step forth Death – this could be an Umbrella Academy-sized hit for Netflix and Warner.

Stay tuned here for more news as it happens.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
