James McAvoy is stepping into a dream role. The actor will voice star as Dream in Audible’s adaptation of The 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.
The Sandman originally ran for 75 issues from 1989-1996 and began 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 15 and adapts the first three volumes of the graphic novel series (Preludes & Nocturnes, The Doll’s House and Dream Country).

Comicbook.com – Kingsman star Taron Egerton expects production on the trilogy closer to get underway in 2020.
“So you have the King’s Man coming, which is a prequel set around 100 years ago, and I’m not in it. But I do know some stuff about it, and it’s really, really exciting, it’s got an amazing cast and it’s an amazing story,” Egerton said at ACE Comic Con Seattle. “And then I think — I think, think, think — we’ll be doing the final chapter in the Harry and Eggsy trilogy next year, I think, yeah.”
The King’s Man, directed by The Secret Service and The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn, extends the franchise when it releases February 2020. Vaughn previously said he hopes to enter into production by late 2019 or early 2020.
“We’ve got to finish off the Eggsy and Harry relationship,” Vaughn told Digital Spy of the mentor relationship between veteran spy Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and Egerton’s Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin.
“The final chapter of their relationship needs to be told, which we’ve got ready to do, and I’m hoping to shoot that later this year or the beginning of next year.”
Egerton’s return to the action-packed franchise is a welcome one, as the star felt emotionally drained from portraying Sir Elton John in Vaughn-produced fantasy musical biopic Rocketman.
latimes.com – “Sorry for the delay,” Taron Egerton says, putting his iPhone down on a table. “I can literally say that I had to take a call from Elton John.”
Little more than 12 hours have passed since the lights came up inside the Cannes Film Festival’s grandest theater, revealing the actor and the iconic musician he plays in “Rocketman” both in tears. The crowd around them rose to its feet as the two embraced, quietly sobbing into the other’s shoulder. Then they migrated down the Croisette to a party on the beach, where the 29-year-old and the 72-year-old duetted together for hundreds of guests standing in their black-tie attire on the sand.
“It was just the perfect day,” Egerton says — one of the best of his young life. But he started it off anxious, walking into the Grand Théâtre Lumière with his breath high in his chest. He couldn’t relax for the first 45 minutes of the film, seated beside John as the performer faced depictions of emotionally turbulent years filled with parental neglect, sexual confusion and substance abuse.
“He only saw it for the first time yesterday, which is why I think he was so profoundly moved,” Egerton recalls. “He’s lived a life less ordinary, but it’s not been an easy life, I don’t think. So to see him, frankly, relive some of that and have such an acute emotional reaction? It’s an emotional thing for me.”
