Netflix’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s best-selling comic series, The Sandman, will begin filming in October following production delays.
Netflix is coming The Sandman Filming of the TV program will begin in October. Neil Gaiman’s best-selling comic series ran for 75 issues from 1989 to 1996, following the adventures of Morpheus, or Dream, the lord of the dream world. The upcoming Netflix adaptation will take a modern approach and will focus on Morpheus after being imprisoned for seventy years as he sets out to restore order to his fallen kingdom and return to his kingdom. Gaiman, who is also co-creating the series, previously revealed during his Comic-Con @ Home panel that filming would already begin, but the coronavirus pandemic has halted production. He said the goal was to start shooting in the fall, and now that plan looks solid.
In a tweet, Gaiman confirmed that filming for The Sandman it will start in three weeks, with production starting in October. Gaiman also included a photo of the script from the first episode. His original tweet can be read below:
The comic series was recently awarded an audible drama that told stories from the first twenty issues of the series, with James McAvoy voicing the title role, along with a stellar cast. Gaiman called the audio adaptation a faithful iteration of his story, which contrasts with previous attempts at live-action Sandman adaptations, all of which failed due to creative differences and abandoned.
While writers and directors attached to previous attempts at live-action adaptations have failed to honor the original material, Netflix is on its way. Sandman the adaptation seems to capture Gaiman’s work in the right way. Now that production is moving forward in the fall, hopefully fans will soon find out more about the series and see how it looks with the prospect of 2020.
