James McAvoy will voice star as Dream in Audible’s adaptation of The Sandman, the classic DC/Vertigo comic book written by Neil Gaiman.
James McAvoy is playing the titular Sandman alongside an impressively star studded cast whose names include: Riz Ahmed, Justin Vivian Bond as Desire, Arthur Darvill, Kat Dennings as Death, Taron Egerton, William Hope, Josie Lawrence, Miriam Margolyes as Despair, Samantha Morton, Bebe Neuwirth, Andy Serkis and Michael Sheen as Lucifer.
The Sandman originally ran for 75 issues from 1989-1996, beginning with the accidental capture of Dream, the younger brother of Death, and the journey that comes when he is released seven decades later. The first part of the Audible drama will debut July 15th and will be adapting the first three volumes of the graphic novel series (Preludes & Nocturnes, The Doll’s House and Dream Country). Neil Gaiman is narrating the series himself and is executive producing alongside longtime collaborator Dirk Maggs.
