Casting for a Sandman tv show

Here’s a post on tor.com: Tom Sturridge In Talks to Star in The Sandman

In July, Gaiman told Collider that season one of The Sandman would cover the first two volumes of the comic, Preludes & Nocturnes and The Doll’s House. As he explained, getting very famous actors to commit to a series is a process that takes years of planning. “Whether we wanted Michael Sheen as our Lucifer on the TV or not, getting somebody of that stature available when you need them is really difficult,” Gaiman said.

Casting every member of the Endless—Dream, Death, Desire, Despair, Destiny, Despair, Delirium/Delight, and Destruction—is no small task, especially when fans have incredibly strong ideas about what these beloved-for-decades characters look like. But if they’re getting close to landing their Dream, then more news can’t be far behind.

That’s something I’d probably get Netflix to watch.

I have to say, casting Dream and Death are important. I don’t think I’d tend to care too much about who was cast for the other Endless.

    These sorts of things can get so far along and then go nowhere, I don’t credit any news until the show is already shot. They had a director and scripts for the Raven Boys one, and now it’s kaput.
