Is Neil Gaiman's Sandman unfilmable?

I'd say it is, because again, I don't think he made good use out of Hector and Lyta Hall. In any event, the UK Guardian says an attempt to make a movie out of the Sandman at New Line studios isn't going over well:
Perhaps we should be calling it “The Curse of Sandman”. Another screenwriter who was on board to work on the long-proposed movie adaptation of the Neil Gaiman-penned comic book appears to have jumped ship.

Eric Heisserer, whose credits include the recent remakes of 80s horror staples Nightmare on Elm Street and The Thing, was hired back in March by New Line as the latest writer for its troubled project to bring the DC/Vertigo comics series to the big screen. Heisserer was brought in just after director and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt left the movie, citing creative differences with Warner subsidiary New Line.
Honestly, I think Time Warner (now said to potentially become part of AT&T in a business merger) is taking all the DC properties much too far, and deluding themselves to think they can turn each and every one into a movie masterpiece. When I think about it, there's quite a few that work magnificently as books, but don't come off the same way as film adaptations, let alone TV shows. So maybe they'd do well to just put them to bed and not spend so much money on something that won't be remembered as well as Citizen Kane's Rosebud in the forseeable future.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
