Joseph Gordon-Levitt has backed out the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman due to creative differences.

As previously reported, the actor made the announcement via his Facebook page saying, "I came to realize that the folks at New Line and I just don't see eye to eye on what makes Sandman special, and what a film adaptation could/should be. So unfortunately, I decided to remove myself from the project."

Gordon-Levitt made the decision one day after The Hollywood Reporter revealed that horror writer Eric Heisserer (Final Destination 5, the 2011 The Thing remake) had been tapped by New Line to write the script.

Though the project is moving ahead, here, Roth Cornet and Donna Dickens pitch the perfect way to adapt Gaiman's gorgeous series.

Spoiler alert: It’s not as a film.
