David Goyer Reveals When The ‘Sandman’ Film Might Go Into Production

There hasn’t been much talk about Warner Bros. planned Sandman film in the recent months. The last time anytihng was heard about the project, it heading to New Line Cinema. Collider recently spoke with producer David Goyer about the status of the project and received a bit of an update regarding it. Goyer revealed to the site that they had brought in a new writer to do a new draft of the film’s screenplay and just when the project might actually go into production.

We’re just about to do a new draft. All of the Vertigo properties ported over to New Line a few months ago. There was a decision from the higher-ups that New Line would focus on the Vertigo properties and Warner Bros would focus on the DC properties. So we’re just starting a re-write with a really fantastic writer that fans of your site will enjoy that’s coming aboard, but I can’t quite announce it yet.

I think that the Vertigo properties are a bit more quirky and off-center than kind of the mainstream superhero stuff at Warners. But I understand the decision because we’re not having to fight for release dates with the Vertigo stuff like we would have been having to do over at Warner Bros. But I feel confident that film will go into production hopefully next year.

While some had become skeptical that this film would ever actually go into production, Goyer’s comment make it sound like this one might not have ended up in “film limbo” like some began speculating. Does this mean that it definitely will start production next year? Not at all. But these are promising comments regarding this project moving forward. Keep checking back for updates on this one and let us know your thoughts on the project and Goyer’s comments below.
