Joseph Gordon-Levitt chats about Sandman movie
The movie of Neil Gaiman's Sandman edges closer, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been chatting about his involvement...
At the end of last year, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was confirmed as being involved in the long-mooted movie of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman. Widely expected to direct and star in the film, thus far it's only his role as producer that's been officially confirmed. And he's been chatting to IGN, tempering things a little by declaring that it's "early days. Very, very early days".
Admitting that "I love just the basic concept of it - just the concept of personifying Dream, along with all of his brothers and sisters, the seven Endless personifying Death, personifying Destruction and Delirium and Destiny and Desire and Despair", he also expressed his love of the art of Sandman too.
"I love big, spectacular movies, but oftentimes big, spectacular movies sort of get stuck in a rut. They go down certain paths that end in big explosions or whatever. Sandman has so much opportunity to do something that's on a grand, grand scale, but really unlike your average big, grand-scale, spectacular movie", he said. And he might just be right there.
Details then aren't particularly forthcoming yet, although it's worth a gander at the IGN piece here. Do note that his Tweet citing 'prelude' wasn't intended to mean anything specific, though.
