Sandman (Comic Book & TV Series)
"Sandman" comic book being adapted as a TV show:

""The Sandman," the Neil Gaiman-written comic book series considered a seminal
work in the medium, is in the early stages of being developed into a TV series.

Warner Bros. TV is in the midst of acquiring television rights from sister company
DC Entertainment and in talks with several writer-producers about adapting the
1990s comic. At the top of the list is Eric Kripke, creator of the CW's horror-
tinged "Supernatural.""

Well, this is going to be ... ''interesting'' if they actually manage to get it out (I'm personally doubtful about that)

Yeah, reading the article, I think this will turn out to be a loose adaptation with some similarities with the comics or a couple of easter eggs here and there.

If it gets out, that is.

The sad thing about them releasing such well known comic book. Is that theres a huge following to Sandman. So a lot of fans will get mad and pissed off, if they do a terrible job at adapting it.

I will also be one of those who will probably get frustrated and angry, if the show isn't as great as the comic book. But, I'm guessing the adaptation will really be for those who have not read the comic. They probably just want to get it out to the world and show how much of a genius Neil Gaiman is.

Gordon-Levitt working with Gaiman on 'Sandman' movie

(Dec 17, Tue): Joseph Gordon-Levitt has tweeted to confirm that he will produce a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's seminal The Sandman comic books.

Gordon-Levitt, who had major roles in The Dark Knight Rises, Brick, and Looper, said he would be working with The Dark Knight's story writer, David Goyer and Gaiman himself on the project with Warner Bros.

Gaiman will be acting as executive producer, while Goyer will be supervising the screenplay.

A film version of The Sandman has been rumored for decades. The Hollywood Reporter says Roger Avary — who won an Oscar with Quentin Tarantino for Pulp Fiction's screenplay — was attached to one project, before DC entered talks with HBO to turn the comics into a TV show.

Neither project gained sufficient momentum. Most recently, Warner Bros. Television unsuccessfully attempted to revive the character for a small-screen series with Supernatural's Eric Kripke.

JGL is an unconventional choice, but that may be what this film needs to get off the ground. Given JGL tweeted #prelude, there's a good chance that (this first) film will adapt Preludes and Nocturnes, the comic's first story arc.
