It was announced this week that the proposed Sandman tv show was shelved, now it seems that is not the case.

During a panel at the Paley Fest earlier in the week, ‘Supernatural’ creator Eric Kripke announced that the proposed TV show adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Sandman’ had been shelved.

Following the announcement, Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, took to Twitter to debunk the claims.

“Correction to world: The Sandman is AWAKE!. Psyched to be working with @neilhimself [Gaiman] on developing one of the greatest series ever! Sandman in any form – comics to live action – doesn’t work without @neilhimself”

Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’ was launched in 1988. It centers around the protagonist, Dream (aka Morpheus), the Lord of the dream world who is held captive for seven decades by an occult ritual. Having escaped, his kingdom has fallen into disrepair in his absence and he sets about changing his old ways.
