You can count on one hand the amount of things we know about Netflix’s The Sandman, but Egerton’s casting strongly legitimatizes the project. As a blossoming A-List talent, starring in blockbuster franchises like Kingsman and leading critically-acclaimed pictures like Rocketman, Egerton’s involvement immediately boosts Sandman’s stock.
Taron Egerton has reportedly joined The Sandman series.
Coming from Deadline, the Rocketman actor is said to have been “attached to an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman.” There is no telling what role Egerton will fulfill, but it does confirm he, is in fact, linked to the Netflix show.
As previously mentioned, The Sandman has successfully kept its cast hush hush for a number of months. The show was originally set to begin production last May, which means they are coming up on a full calendar year of keeping most details secret.
