Neil Gaiman Confirms Movie Talks For Sandman, American Gods 35

An anonymous reader writes "Neil Gaiman has confirmed that things are finally coming together for a Sandman movie adaptation. Fresh on the release of a new issue of Sandman, the popular graphic novel that he first started back in 1988, Gaiman told CNN that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has agreed to produce the Sandman movie, and that both his knowledge and commitment 'impressed the hell out of me.' Gaiman also confirmed new progress on adapting American Gods into a TV series. 'People are being talked to, exciting things are going on,' Gaiman tells CNN, teasing that its current status is still 'wait and see.'"

    I dream about the destiny of this movie, whether it will be the delerium I desire, or the death and destruction I despair it will be.

    The website hyperionmovie.com seems to have last been updated in October 2010, and what they had there was not super substantial in the first place. My guess? Deader than the City of Poets. More dead than God's Grove or Hebron. Makes the flippin' interiors of Labyrinth worlds after the Opus Dei look positively lively.

    Seriously, I think someone took a good look at the idea of covering a Priest, Poet, Soldier, Scholar, Detective, and Consul (six major viewpoint characters) and giving them intelligible stories and arcs in even a LOTR-trilogy-length movie duration, along with a seventh plot about Ousters invading and an eigth about the second Keats cybrid, and half a plot about the journey to the Time Tombs from the ship, threw up their hands, and decided to rewrite the whole thing as a Game of Thrones-style TV season or three. I wouldn't blame them if they did - the source material resembles the sci-fi version of A Song of Ice and Fire in terms of narrative structure.
