The DC foothold on TV isn’t losing traction anytime soon, as now that CBS Supergirl has her pilot marching orders, so too does FOX’s Lucifer series have a greenlight, deriving from Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman series. Not only that, but Jerry Bruckheimer and Len Wiseman have been added to the talent pool bringing Lucifer to light.
DC's stranglehold on the TV superhero game got even tighter with last week's news that a 'Titans' series may fight crime on TNT, but the comic company's latest adaptation effort doesn't belong to the cape persuasion. Neil Gaiman 'Sandman' comic spinoff 'Lucifer' may fall into its own series on FOX, as the network adds a put pilot order to its ranks.
As we reported a month ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is involved with adapting 'Sandman' for the big screen, with David Goyer having written the film's outline. The new news is that Gordon-Levitt may not only star, but produce and direct the film as well.
