Joseph Gordon-Levitt has assured fans his planned Sandman film is on the right track.

The Sin City: A Dame To Kill For star was first linked to the project last year, when it was reported that he was set to produce and act in a big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's DC and Vertigo Comics book, but so far little has been heard of the film.

He has now given Moviefone an update, explaining: "We're working towards it."

Joseph said: "It's me and (David S) Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It's a really cool team of people. It's a lot of the same people who worked on the (Christopher) Nolan Batman movies.

"It's really exciting. There's not a script yet, we're still kind of working it out because it's such a complicated adaptation because Sandman wasn't written as novels. Sin City was written as a novel. Sandman is 75 episodic issues.

"There's a reason people have been trying and failing to adapt Sandman for the past 20 years."

But despite the complications, the star revealed he has high hopes about getting the Sandman movie off the ground.

"You know, we're still in the middle of it, so I don't want to make any claims, but I think we've got the right ideas," he concluded.
