Neil Gaiman is one of the most celebrated fantasy/fiction authors around at the moment, and several of his works have been turned into TV series and movies. For example there was the Stardust movie, the Coraline animated movie, American Gods, and more recently, Amazon picked up Good Omens (a book he wrote with Terry Prachett) and made that into a TV series as well.
However, one of Gaiman’s most popular works, Sandman, has eluded the studios for years. There were talks that the series could be turned into a movie, and at one point in time, actor Joseph Gordon Levitt was attached to it as well. The good news is that if you’re a fan of Sandman, a report from The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Netflix could have signed a deal that would turn the graphic novel into an epic TV series.
For those who are unfamiliar, the Sandman is one of the more popular graphic novel series around. It is quite an epic tale and we imagine that it would be tricky trying to adapt it for television, which is why it has also been reported that this could possibly be the most expensive TV series that DC Entertainment could do to date.
There is no official confirmation yet, but if it is true, it could be a huge win for Netflix, especially since Gaiman’s other series have managed to escape their grasp.
