Joining A Dream Voice Cast
The Hollywood Reporter has just announced voice details of Audible’s Sandman drama and here they are…
James McAvoy is stepping into a dream role. The actor will voice star as Dream in Audible’s adaptation of Sandman, the classic DC/Vertigo comic book written by Neil Gaiman.
McAvoy, known for playing Prof. X in four X-Men films, will lead a cast that also includes 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.
Sandman originally ran for 75 issues from 1989-1996 and kicked off with the accidental capture of Dream, the younger brother of Death, and the journey that begins when he is released seven decades later.
The first part of the Audible drama will debut on 15 July and adapts the first three volumes of DC’s graphic novel series (Preludes & Nocturnes, The Doll’s House and Dream Country).
“A truly exceptional cast of artists will be bringing this cultural phenomenon to life. We are honoured to be working alongside Neil Gaiman and DC to create a truly immersive adaptation that we know fans and listeners will love,” Audible Originals editor in chief David Blum said in a statement.
Gaiman is narrating the series and is executive producing alongside his longtime collaborator Dirk Maggs, who adapted the comics and is to direct the series. More information can be located on Audible’s website.
