Netflix today confirmed (28) the full cast of ‘Sandman,’ a new original series based on the eponymous comics by Neil Gaiman.
The work will feature Tom Sturridge (Dream), Gwendoline Christie (Lucifer), Vivienne Acheampong (Lucienne), Charles Dance (Roderick Burgess), Boyd Holbrook (The Corinthians), Asim Chaudhry (Abel) and Sanjeev Bhaskar (Cain).
Neil Gaiman, creator of the original comics, has confirmed that some of the comic book franchise stories fans will see are “24 Hours,” which revolve around a restaurant whose customers go mad and kill each other; “Dream a Little Dream of Me”, about a sand-addicted woman from the Dream character who brings in the classic character John Constantine; “A hope in hell”, a story of Morpheus traveling in hell; and “Collectors,” a story entirely enshrined in a serial killer convention.
The first season of “Sandman” will have 11 episodes. The project is described as the most expensive television series ever made by DC.
“Wonder Woman” screenwriter Allan Heinberg will act as screenwriter, producer and showrunner for the series, with Gaiman and David Goyer joining as executive producers.
DC’s comic book label Vertigo originally released the series between 1989 and 1996, with several additional series arriving in 2009 and between 2013 and 2015.
“Sandman” is Gaiman’s most popular creation and centers around the mythical being Dream, who is part of a group known as The Perpetuals or The Endless. As the name suggests, the comic book protagonist rules the dream world. The plot begins when he escapes his 70-year captivity and finds his kingdom dilapidated today.
As of yet, there are still no release predictions.
