‘The Sandman’: Netflix Releases Behind The Scenes Video For Neil Gaiman Series
Netflix has released the first little tease for their upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman‘, with a behind the scenes video. Whilst you don’t really get to see any actual footage, you do get to see some sets and props, along with some chat from Gaiman and the stars.
Based on the comic book series created for DC by Neil Gaiman, ‘The Sandman’ will be a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven. The series follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, played by Tom Sturridge (‘Sweetbitter’), as he mends the cosmic – and human – mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
The ridiculous cast for the show includes Sturridge as Dream of the Endless; Gwendolyn Christie (‘Game Of Thrones’) as Lucifer; Sanjeev Bhaskar (‘Unforgotten’) and Amid Chaudry (‘People Just Do Nothing’) as Cain and Abel; Charles Dance (‘Game of Thrones’) as Roderick Burgess; Vivienne Acheampong (‘Famalam’) as Lucienne; Boyd Holbrook (‘Narcos’) as The Corinthian; David Thewlis (‘Harry Potter’ films, ‘Fargo’) as John Dee; Kirby Howell-Baptiste (‘The Good Place’, ‘Why Women Kill’) as Death; Mason Alexander Park (‘Cowboy Bebop’) as Desire; Donna Preston (‘Famalam’) as Despair; Jenna Coleman (‘Doctor Who’, ‘Victoria’) as Johanna Constantine; Niamh Walsh (‘Jamestown’, ‘The English Game’) and Joely Richardson (‘The Rook’, ‘Nip/Tuck’) as Ethel Cripps; Kyo Ra as Rose Walker; Razane Jammal (‘Paranormal’, ‘Doubt’) as Lyta Hall; Sandra James Young (‘EastEnders’) as Unity Kinkaid; Stephen Fry as Gilbert; With Patton Oswalt voicing Matthew.
