Pretty cool huh? Neil Gaiman, the man behind the comic, is co-writing the series along with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. WB TV is the studio the show will be filming at. Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, played by Tom Sturridge, who is the Dream King as he mends the cosmic and human mistakes he’s made during his existence. The show was originally supposed to air a lot earlier when it was ordered in 2019. Before that, there were attempts at a film that completely flopped from various writers and Joseph Gordon-Levitt pulling out of the most recent attempt.
