When I asked, a couple of weeks ago, what Warners could replace the Harry Potter franchise with, I was fairly dismissive about DC Entertainment’s chances for coming up with something to fill multiplexes and offer the same kind of crossover appeal as the boy wizard. And then I realized that I was thinking way, way too narrowly.
Author Neil Gaiman says the long-in-development adaptation of Death: The High Cost of Living has stalled again, this time because of the restructuring at Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment: “… Whether or not it will come back to life, I don’t know. Death seems amazingly hard to kill.”
I’m just going to come out and say it: I’m very, very worried about the prospect of The Sandman being turned into a television series. No, that’s not exactly right: What I’m worried about are the latest rumors about The Sandman being turned into a television series.
The Sandman, Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed comic book, is in the early stages of development as a television series. The title as had a tortured relationship with Hollywood, where a planned film adaptation has languished since at least the mid-1990s.
