'Sandman': Netflix nears deal to adapt Neil Gaiman comic series

Netflix is reportedly nearing a deal to adapt the Neil Gaiman comic series The Sandman.

TVLine confirmed the streaming service is close to signing a deal with Warner Bros. TV to adapt the comic book series as a new TV show.

Deadline said Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) will write and serve as showrunner on the adaptation. Gaiman will executive produce with David Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel).

The Hollywood Reporter said Netflix has signed the deal with Warner Bros. TV. Sources said it is the most expensive TV series DC Entertainment has ever done.

The Sandman had a 75-issue run from 1989 to 1996 with DC Comics and Vertigo. The series follows Dream, aka Morpheus, one of the ancient and powerful beings known as the Endless, who personify concepts such as dreams, death and desire.

Several efforts have been made to adapt The Sandman over the years. Most recently, New Line attempted to pursue a big-screen adaptation with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as star and director. Gordon-Levitt left the project in 2016.

The Sandman will join Gaiman's growing list of TV projects. His novel American Gods is a TV series at Starz, while his book with Terry Pratchett, Good Omens, is now a show at Amazon.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle to have baby Archie christened Saturday

Royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have their son christened this week.

People magazine reported Monday the duke and duchess of Sussex will hold a private christening for 2-month-old Archie Harrison at the Queen's private chapel Saturday at Windsor Castle.

The chapel was created for Queen Victoria between 1840 and 1847, and was rebuilt with modern updates in 1994 after being destroyed in the Windsor fire. Sources said Harry and Markle wanted "an intimate, peaceful setting" for Archie's christening.

Harry and Markle have reportedly invited around 25 close family members and friends to attend the event. The christening will be private, although photos are expected to be released Sunday.

"This is a beautiful milestone and they are excited to share it as a family first and then with the world," a source explained.

Good Morning America said the guests will include Prince Charles and Camilla, duchess of Cornwall, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and Markle's mother, Doria Ragland. Queen Elizabeth II won't be present due to a prior engagement.

Harry and Markle's decision to keep the christening private has been criticized by some in the U.K. Renovations on Harry and Markle's new home, Frogmore Cottage, reportedly cost about $3 million for British taxpayers.
