Joseph Gordon-Levitt finally sees the light at the end of the tunnel as ‘The Sandman? movie development is almost moving up. The upcoming film adaptation of the acclaimed ?Sandman? series by Neil Gaiman will make its way to the big screen with the help of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is rumored to be the producer, director, and an actor of the film, according to VCPost. Along with Gordon-Levitt will be writer Jack Thorne (Skins), screenwriter and director David S. Goyer (Blade: Trinity), and the ?Sandman? creator himself Neil Gaiman, shared by VCPost.
The Sandman Movie vs. Series
Joseph Gordon-Levitt shared his thoughts about why ‘The Sandman? movie adaptation is better than making it into an episodic series during a recent ?Ask Me Anything? on Reddit. ?I think a big screen adaptation is a better idea and here?s why. If you did the episodic version, I think it could very well end up as a not-as-good-version of what is already brilliant in the comics. But by reworking the material into a big movie, Gaiman?s brilliant characters and ideas get to take shape in a way they never have before,? shared by CrossMap.
?Also, I think Sandman deserves to look absolutely mind-blowingly awesome, just on a visual level, and as cinematic as some TV shows are becoming these days, they still can?t compete with big movies visually, just because they can?t afford to.?
Tom Hiddleston as Morpheus
Questions are also still pondering around on who will play Morpheus in ‘The Sandman’ Movie adaptation. CrossMap reports that on rumors that Joseph Gordon-Levitt might also be playing the role of the lead character in ?Sandman.? Although the proposal of Gordon-Levitt is very realistic, Neil Gaiman has also suggested to whom the lead actor should be, proposing Tom Hiddleston, who is best known for his portrayal of Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Morpheus, shared by CrossMap.
