The First Seven Cast Members of The Sandman Announced
After a lot of teasing and speculation, the cast of The Sandman is coming together. The Sandman is a live-action adaptation of the much-beloved comic series by Neil Gaiman. The series was picked up a year and a half ago by Netflix. The comic adaptation has been in the works for years and at one point was to be a film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The cast includes Tom Sturridge as Dream, Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess, Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain, Asim Chaudhry as Abel, and Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian.
A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
