He has one guarantee for the main character of ‘Sandman.’
We haven’t heard much about the Sandman movie since Joseph Gordon-Levitt and David S. Goyer came on as producers, but the adaptation of the 10-volume, Neil Gaiman–helmed graphic novels is still very much on—and it won’t be like other big action movies, according to Gordon-Levitt.
He attended the Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards Saturday night, and after touching on some current projects, MTV News’s Josh Horowitz asked him about the state of Sandman, which had been in production hell since the ’90s. He understands why fans are getting antsy, but he asks them to be patient. After all, he’s adapting stories from years of backlog that doesn’t have any beginning, middle, or end in the same line as Watchmen.
Although he wouldn’t give any hints as to what aesthetic the film would have or what stories are being adapted, he did assure one thing: Morpheus would never punch anybody.
“Big spectacular action movies are generally about crime fighters fighting crime and blowing shit up. This has nothing to do with that,” Gordon-Levitt said. “And it was actually one of the things that Neil Gaiman said to me, he said, ‘Don’t have any punching.’ Because he never does. If you read the comics, Morpheus doesn’t punch anybody. That’s not what he does. It’s going to be like a grand spectacular action film, but that relies on none of those same old ordinary clichés. So, that’s why it’s taking a lot time to write, but it’s going to be really good.”
