“Unfortunately, for a lot of varying reasons, Sandman is not in the works, at least for this season,” Kripke tells The Hollywood Reporter.
He didn’t elaborate any further. People have been trying to develop Sandman for decades now, and so far nobody has come even close. Some adaptations were faithful, some horrifically offbase. Kripke’s TV show seemed like it had the potential to please fans and tell the story right. I guess now we’ll have to check out the DVD in Morpheus’ library of unwritten books (which I’m assuming has a video wing).
