Netflix Is Set to Adapt Neil Gaimans Sandman Comics Into TV Show

first_img“I … came to the conclusion that the best version of this property exists as an HBO series or limited series, not as a feature film, not even as a trilogy,” Heisserer told io9 in 2016. “The structure of the feature film really doesn’t mesh with this. So I went back and said here’s the work that I’ve done. This isn’t where it should be. It needs to go to TV.” Sandman, Neil Gaiman’s dark mythology comic, is reportedly coming to Netflix: The streaming company and Warner Bros. are signing a major deal to adapt the best-seller comic into a new live-action TV show, The Hollywood Reporter noted.No other production details have been disclosed at this time, however, Allan Heinberg (ABC’s The Catch, Grey’s Anatomy, Wonder Woman) will reportedly serve as the showrunner of the Sandman TV series. Gaiman, the creator of Sandman and co-creator of the Good Omens Amazon Prime Video series, is set to hold the role of executive producer with David Goyer (Man of Steel). Netflix and Warner Bros. didn’t provide any comments on the Sandman deal.Netflix Set to Order Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’ as an Original https://t.co/8Np4kvwYrE pic.twitter.com/JqOkHnzy8Q— What’s on Netflix (@whatonnetflix) July 1, 2019Netflix’s latest take will be the first Sandman TV show after there have been many efforts to make Gaiman’s comic into a hit series or film. Previously, New Line Cinema tried to adapt the graphic novel into a movie, however, this attempt failed. In late 2013, Gaiman announced that he was working with Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the film, however, Gordon-Levitt left the movie project in March 2016 due to creative differences with the New Line Cinema studio. Eric Heisserer, a screenwriter who was previously involved in New Line Cinema’s Sandman project, also said he wasn’t working with it anymore and that it should be a TV series instead.
