PostThe Sandman - by Neil Gaiman. Cast announced for Netflix TV series

It's what fans of the mature comics and graphic novels have been DREAMING of for three decades, a live action interpretation of Neil Gaiman's seminal series on the Endless.

Tom Sturrdige as Dream. Gwendline Christie as Lucifer! and some other inspired choices leaning on British cast. A broad cast of other characters will feature including William Shakespeare.
Story is by Neil Gaiman himself and David S. Goyer.

Gaiman said: "For the last thirty-three years, the Sandman characters have breathed and walked around and talked in my head. I’m unbelievably happy that now, finally, they get to step out of my head and into reality. I can’t wait until the people out there get to see what we’ve been seeing as Dream and the rest of them take flesh, and the flesh belongs to some of the finest actors out there. This is astonishing, and I’m so grateful to the actors and to all of the Sandman collaborators — Netflix, Warner Bros., DC, to Allan Heinberg and David Goyer, and the legions of crafters and geniuses on the show — for making the wildest of all my dreams into reality.”


The Sandman cast:

Tom Sturridge as Dream
Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer
Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne
Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess
Asim Chaudry as Abel
Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain

The Sandman Production

Allan Heinberg - showrunner
Neil Gaiman - co-writer & executive producer
David S. Goyer - co-writer & executive producer
Warner Bros. Television - production studio


Considering Tom Ellis' limp interpretation of Gaiman's Lucifer, so glad he/it has been reinvented as Christie!

Not sure about a couple of those, but I'll keep an open mind.
