Sandman Cast Includes Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie and Charles Dance

After years in development hell, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman adaptation is finally pushing forward as a Netflix series. We’ve known for a while that Tom Sturridge will be playing the lead role of Morpheus/Dream, but now the rest of the cast has been announced, and it includes some familiar faces from Game of Thrones.

As per Gaiman himself, these are the new cast members of the upcoming Sandman series:

You’ll remember Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth and Charles Dance as Tywin Lannister from the hit HBO series. Boyd Holbrook is also best known for another Netflix show, Narcos; comic book movie fans will remember him as the robot-hand guy from Logan.

Other cast members may not have the same amount of star power as their other co-stars (even Morpheus himself), but I guess that opens them up for completely original interpretations of their characters.

Sandman is probably one of the biggest comic properties that have been having a hard time trying to get adapted into live-action, and it’s completely understandable. Gaiman has built this entire fantasy world that’s so expansive and bizarre that no movie would be able to tell all of it; and no series would have the budget to capture the dazzling visuals. Hopefully with Netflix, they’ve found a good compromise. Let’s just hope they manage to keep one unified vision; unlike the other Gaiman series, American Gods, which had a good start, but had been recently plagued with behind-the-scenes drama.

No release date has been set for Netflix’s Sandman.
