A live-action adaptation of The Sandman has been a long time coming. 33 years have elapsed since Neil Gaiman’s iconic and subversive comic book series was originally released, but a movie or TV show based on the British author’s beloved works has never materialized.

There are numerous reasons why – chief among them being Gaiman’s reluctance to attach himself to the myriad of ultimately failed attempts to bring The Sandman to the big or small screen.
