Joseph Gordon-Levitt Signs On as Producer for the ‘Sandman’ Movie

 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed on as a producer for the film adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic series.

The Dark Knight Rises actor announced his involvement via Twitter (embedded above). USA Today reports that Gordon-Levitt has not confirmed as to whether or not he will also serve as a director or an actor for this movie.

Here’s more from The Verge: “The Sandman comics tell the story of the Lord of Dreams, most often referred to as either Dream or Morpheus, a wiry, haughty personification of dreams themselves. After being held captive for 70 years, Gaiman’s 75-issue run follows Dream / Morpheus as he adapts to the world he finds outside his prison and rebuilds his kingdom. The comics segue between horror and fantasy, and gained a dedicated following after the first issue was released in 1989.”

In addition to the Sandman film adaptation, Gaiman has a number of other projects in the pipeline. In an interview with The New York Observer, he revealed that he has been working on the American Gods TV series and a short story set in the Neverwhere universe titled “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back.”
