Horror scribe Eric Heisserer (“Final Destination 5,” “The Conjuring 2”) has come onboard to write the film adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed 75-issue Vertigo comic “Sandman” for New Line Cinema.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is attached as director and star of what they hope will be the first in a trilogy. David Goyer penned the treatment which Heisserer will work from.
Like the comic, the story follows Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams, along with his powerful brothers and sisters including Destiny, Death, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium.
