1. Sandman

Really Neil Gaiman’s comic masterpiece The Sandman shouldn’t be a film but an HBO series.

The 10-volume epic tells the story of Morpheus, the King of the Dreams, and his family the Endless (who are other embodiments of human experience: Destiny, Death, Desire, Despair, Destruction, and Delight/Delirium). It’s the comic world’s crowning jewel – the most literary, sophisticated work ever. Gaiman incorporates stories and myths from cultures around the planet and sets his narratives all throughout history. (After all, as long as there have been stories there has been the King of the Dreams.) Perhaps with the success of Game of Thrones there will be more interest in exploring long-form fantasy projects?

I’m not even sure where to begin with casting…
