Sandman Joseph Gordon-Levitt David Goyer Banner

David Goyer has been out promoting the upcoming third and final season of his Starz series Da Vinci’s Demons, and during a conversation with Collider, he gave an update on Joseph Gordon-Levitt's SANDMAN movie. Goyer is developing the planned film adaptation of the Neil Gaiman comic series with Gordon-Levitt, and he says a new writer has joined them to work on the latest draft of the script. Goyer also told the site that production might begin sometime in 2016.

We’re just about to do a new draft. All of the Vertigo properties ported over to New Line a few months ago. There was a decision from the higher-ups that New Line would focus on the Vertigo properties and Warner Bros would focus on the DC properties. So we’re just starting a re-write with a really fantastic writer that fans of your site will enjoy that’s coming aboard, but I can’t quite announce it yet.

I think that the Vertigo properties are a bit more quirky and off-center than kind of the mainstream superhero stuff at Warners. But I understand the decision because we’re not having to fight for release dates with the Vertigo stuff like we would have been having to do over at Warner Bros. But I feel confident that film will go into production hopefully next year.

The project hasn't received an official greenlight yet, so I'm not totally convinced that the film will actually happen, but like Goyer, I'm also hopeful production will start next year. Any guesses as to which screenwriter has been tapped to work on the new SANDMAN script?

I am always cautious when it comes to Verigo comic adaptations

They are always left of centre and will never be blockbusters. They can be the arthouse of comics, without the pomposity or arrogance. But they can also be the most extravagant. Sandman would fit into that category and without the necessary financial input it might not work.
It needs to be marketed well, unlike Constantine which was starting to shape up well.It should have been called Hellblazer, though.
If this turns out well and if there is a future for Watchmen then maybe someone will try,

If this turns out well and if there is a future for Watchmen then maybe someone will try, and succeed with something like The Invisibles. I would love to see that.

I'd love it if it was Neil Gaiman himself

the closer he is to this movie, the happier I'll be. Failing that, I'd love somebody like Michael Arndt or Christopher Nolan.

I'd love to see a SANDMAN movie happen, but only if it's done right.
