Joseph Gordon-Levitt to direct and star in Sandman

Neil Gaiman's Sandman is finally coming to the big screen - and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be in front of and behind the camera...

There's been no shortage of talk over the years about adapting Neil Gaiman's Sandman for the big screen. But things have taken a giant step forward, with the news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to take on the role as Warner Bros pushed ahead with a movie version.

Furthermore, Gordon-Levitt is also set to direct the film, following the success of his directorial debut, Don Jon.

The news broke overnight, and has since been confirmed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt on his Twitter account. He wrote that "I'm incredibly honored to be working with David Goyer, Warner Bros and @neilhimself on SANDMAN #Prelude".

UPDATE: Gordon-Levitt has since Tweeted that he's only signed on as producer thus far. But the original report suggests that he's set to star and direct too.

It had already been revealed that David S Goyer had pitched a movie take on Sandman to Warner Bros, although it's unclear yet if he'll be writing the script himself. That 'Prelude' hashtag, meanwhile, is being taken as suggesting that the film will focus on the first Sandman collection.

As we hear more on this, we'll let you know. But it strikes us as really very good news.

The first film had no right being as great as it was so I'm up for more, particular seeing as it has a much better cast this time around. James Franco clearly phoned it in thinking it would be shite so I'm glad he's gone

Does the Planet of the Apes remake they set on an alien world count as canon in this remake universe, or should this film and its predecessor be counted as entirely separate from that?

That shite doesn't count as a movie let alone as canon to any other movie series.

For me it's the "would that really happen" question - how would monkeys, regardless of their intelligence, manage to defeat the US Navy with its aircraft carriers, battleships and nuclear submarines?

and what about the less friendly nations, imagine loads of apes crossing the 38th parallel into North Korea :lol:

Paul Rudd confirmed as antman in Edgar wright's movie. I think that's a pretty good casting choice.

It's seems like a good choice with the direction of the movie. We shall wait and see.
