With Warner Bros. expected to announce the names of their untitled DC Comics movies very soon, many are expecting that one of the announcements will be for a Sandman movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has already been announced as a producer on Sandman, and the expectation is that he could star in and direct the film as well.

In a new interview with MovieFone about Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Gordon Levitt gave a minor update on the status of the Sandman script.

"Right now we're working on a script. It's me and Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros," said Gordon –Levitt. "It's a really cool team of people. It's a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan Batman movies. It's really exciting. There's not a script yet, we're still kind of working it out because it's such a complicated adaptation because Sandman wasn't written as novels. Sin City was written as a novel. Sandman is 75 episodic issues. There's a reason people have been trying and failing to adapt Sandman for the past 20 years."

In regards to if the movie will actually finally happen, Gordon-Levitt said, "You know, we're still in the middle of it, so I don't want to make any claims, but I think we've got the right ideas."

While Warner Bros. is building a cohesive DC Comics Movie Universe with their superhero projects, it's unknown if Sandman will exist in that same universe or be a one-off project. In regards to the Sandman universe, Gordon-Levitt said, "It's such a huge world. We're definitely talking about in terms of a whole world."
