Joseph Gordon-Levitt on His Interest in ‘Sandman’
Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt spoke to IGN recently and talked about his interest in the ‘Sandman’ movie.
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.

Hopefully we won’t see Sandman get stuck in a rut, as audiences have seen a lot of great comic adaptations come to life recently.
