Finally, someone who remembers the golden age Sandman.
This is the Sandman movie I want. Get Jackie Earl Haley to play him and I'm sold.

He may or may not have directed his first movie, but he loves ‘Sandman’ and he has the same amount of dedication to the material that (director) Peter Jackson had to ‘Lord of the Rings’ and Sam Rami had to ‘Spider-Man.’”

It was basically a toxic rant about a draft by William Farmer for Peters, and it was such a bizarre, horrifying misfire that I went a little over the top. In the years since, I've spoken to many filmmakers who would love to take a shot at the material, and they've all acknowledged the same fear... that they would screw it up and displease Neil Gaiman. No one wants to be that person, or at least none of the people I spoke with want to be that person. And that's great.
Today, when Borys Kit and James Hibberd broke the story today, I glanced at it and thought Kripke already had the gig, but now it looks like they're actually still meeting with people to try and find the right fit, with Kripke merely the guy at the top of the potential list for the moment. What I really respect about "Supernatural" is how good they got at the art of building a season, something that I think is essential in serialized storytelling. With "Sandman," you've got amazing potential season arcs lurking in there, and I don't think it's as easy as just saying, "One graphic novel, one season." A really smart showrunner is going to feel free to take the material and completely explode it before putting it back together in the shape of a TV show. And they're going to know that they don't have to reinvent anything... they've got this outstanding source to draw on, and the gig is more about curating. Finding the best way to translate what makes the comic great to the screen.
Whatever happens, I hope Warner Bros. moves cautiously here and really finds the right match. In those hands, "Sandman" could be the next great TV obsession, and a wealth of material for years to come.
