Netflix Awakens to Gaiman’s Sandman for Live-Action Series
Jul 01, 2019
Netflix looks to make Dream a media reality with a new, live-action series based on Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman.
The Hollywood Reporter states that “Netflix has signed what sources describe as a massive financial deal with Warner Bros. Television to adapt the best-seller ... Sources familiar with the pact note it is the most expensive TV series that DC Entertainment has ever done. …
“The Netflix take represents the first Sandman TV series after numerous efforts to adapt Gaiman's horror, fantasy and mythology tale about Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams, and the Endless, the powerful group of siblings that includes Destiny, Death, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium (as well as Dream).”
Gaiman will serve as an executive producer for the series with David Goyer. The pair were last associated with trying to bring the property to film with New Line Cinema. Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) will write and act as showrunner.
