Gordon-Levitt quits ‘Sandman’ film



NEW YORK - Joseph Gordon-Levitt has dropped out of a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman,” saying he and the studio don’t see “eye to eye” on the project.

In a message posted Saturday on Facebook, Gordon-Levitt said he was pulling out after several years of development because New Line Cinema has a different idea about “what makes ‘Sandman’ special.” Warner Bros. recently shifted the film to its subsidiary New Line. “Conjuring 2” screenwriter Eric Heisserer was also brought in.

Gordon-Levitt had been set to direct and star in the DC Comics title.

Gaiman, an executive producer of the film, tweeted that his respect for the actor-director is “undiminished.” The author added that he has little control over the film’s production.

New Line didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.
