Sandman Comic Book Optioned

November 20, 2013

David S. Goyer knows a thing or two about adapt comic books. To date he’s penned screenplays for The Crow: City of Angels, which was inspired by James O’Barr’s Crow comics, three Blade movies, Batman Begins and the summer hit Man of Steel¬† With the last of those pulling in an incredible $662 million worldwide, Warner Bros. is happy to keep Goyer around, and currently has him attached to Batman vs. Superman and presumably the eventual¬† Justice League movie. So now is a pretty sweet time for Goyer to push for his own passion project, and word has it that’s exactly what’s he is up to.

Badass Digest reports Goyer has pitched an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s signature comic Sandman to Warner Bros – but warns this could-be project is in the very earliest of stages. Essentially now it’s just talk. Their source says that notable comic book writer Geoff Johns is lending his weight to Goyer’s proposition. Moreover, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is said to be interested in working on this could-be feature.
