Joseph Gordon-Levitt over Sandman

Vorige maand kwam officieel naar buiten dat Joseph Gordon-Levitt betrokken zou zijn bij een filmadaptie van Neil Gaimain’s Sandman stripboekserie. In een interview heeft hij er commentaar op gegeven:

“Well, I love just the basic concept of it – just the concept of personifying Dream, along with all of his brothers and sisters, the seven Endless personifying Death, personifying Destruction and Delirium and Destiny and Desire and Despair. I mean, that’s just a fascinating and, I think, a really cinematic concept. You look at the art of Sandman, and it just looks spectacular. I love big, spectacular movies, but oftentimes big, spectacular movies sort of get stuck in a rut. They go down certain paths that end in big explosions or whatever. Sandman has so much opportunity to do something that’s on a grand, grand scale, but really unlike your average big, grand-scale, spectacular movie. I guess that’s the tip of the iceberg.”

Eerder tweette hij een zin welke het woord prelude bevatte. Dit is de titel van de eerste stripboek welke uitkwam van de serie:

“I honestly just wrote that as sort of a pun, because this tweet was a prelude to who knows what’s to come. Obviously “Prelude” is the title of the first issue, but… Yeah, nothing is cemented yet. But there’s so much potential in that material. It’s exciting.”
