There's been talk of a big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" for years, but it seems that things are finally kicking into gear. David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are working on a script, with Jgl set to direct and star, but it seems that the prolific author has his own suggestions about who should play Morpheus.

Not to be confused with author Neil Gaiman's celebrated comic book series of the same name, Argento's vision of the Sandman comes from author E.T.A.

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will unite once again to do battle with a series of weird and wonderful monsters. Though the series has been on air since 1993, this new incarnation will be a big budget reboot from the team behind Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent.
But what became of the original (and best!) Power Rangers cast we worshipped in the early '90s? Digital Spy finds out what happened to the all-action sextet below.
David Yost landed the role of Blue Ranger Billy Cranston just three months after moving to California in 1993. In an intriguing piece of trivia, his character was named after Bryan Cranston, who at the time was doing voice work for Power Rangers producer Haim Saban.
Yost appeared in more than 200 episodes of Power Rangers, making him the only Ranger to appear in every episode of the original series. »
