Joseph Gordon-Levitt Drops Out Of ‘Sandman’ Project

In an announcement that seemed to come out of nowhere, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has left his Sandman project at New Line Cinema. The reason given for his departure was due to a disagreement with the studio. This news was shocking because it came one day after New Line announced Eric Hesserier was hired to write the DC Comic Adaptation.


The Sandman was set up at Warner Brother in 2013 after the success of the Dark Knight. Gordon-Levitt was to produce along with screenwriter David Goyer. Joseph Gordon-Levitt took to social media late today to explain what happened.



Now with Joseph Gordon-Levitt dropping out, it’s anyone’s guess as to who you will step in. Who would you want to play Sandman?
