Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Direct and Star in Neil Gaiman's 'Sandman'
Well, despite a strong audition from Sean Penn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has won the role of Dream in Warner Brothers' adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics. According to Deadline, the long-gestating project finally has its lead, as well as a director to move it forward, as Gordon-Levitt is also rumored to make this his sophomore directorial follow-up to Don Jon. David Goyer, the uneven re-inventor behind so many a comic adaptation, pitched the treatment the studio is moving forward with, but Warner is still looking for a writer. There's still time to grow your Cure hair back out for the premiere.
