Gordon-Levitt is set to star in the upcoming Sandman movie as Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams. Scheduled to be released in 2016, the film is based on the Neil Gaiman-penned comic book series about Morpheus and his powerful brothers called the Endless.
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.
