Sandman should be on HBO.

March 26th, 2014

No!

Sandman

Logline: Neil Gaiman’s classic graphic novel about Dream and his siblings, finally appears to be coming to the big screen.

Status: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who probably has the juice to make things happen right now, is producing with the possibility of starring and directing. Jack Thorne (How I Live Now) is writing the screenplay, based on a pitch by David S. Goyer.

Not as a movie! Sandman should be an HBO series. All 76 issues done, basically as is. Spend the money on special effects and whatnot! Not a two hour movie; a movie can’t do Sandman justice. I think only HBO can do Sandman justice.

Ug… this is still swirling? JGL could probably do the series justice, but I’m not even sure which part of the storyline they’d try to fit into 2 hours.

Granted, as a series, I’d end up crying for the last, what… last half of last season. At minium.
