Neil Gaiman Responds to Joseph Gordon-Levitt Leaving ‘Sandman’

By March 6, 2016

Fans excited about New Line’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman were dealt a crushing blow yesterday when the film’s star and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt left the project (read the story here). With the studio scrambling to get the film back on track, the comic’s creator Gaiman took to Twitter to voice his opinion on this latest development.

And even though this didn’t pan out, the two voiced their desire to work together again in the future.

Gaiman also reminded fans that whatever the future of the Sandman film may be, it’s not up to him as he no longer owns the rights.

Not that he has any regrets…

Of course, regardless of what happens with the film, Gaiman won’t let it diminish his own work crafting this iconic comic book.

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens as New Line and DC Comics go back to the drawing board and try to bring Sandman to the big screen.
