neil gaiman empire podcast

Neil Gaiman is the award-winning author and graphic novelist who brought us The Sandman, American Gods and The Graveyard Book, all of which are or have been in development for the screen, as well as Stardust and Coraline, which film fans may recognise from the movies they inspired.

Since Gaiman has a new book out - The Ocean At The End Of The Lane, already set up for Joe Wright to direct - we sat down to speak to him at length about his career, his good friend Hayao Miyazaki and the Gaiman movies that might have been.*

*Here's a taste (and warning) of what might have been: Gaiman reveals in the podcast that one draft of the Sandman movie saw Dream chasing after some MacGuffins to avoid the apocalypse / Y2K 'crisis', along with his 'brothers' Lucifer and the Corinthian. So for all that and a whole lot more, click play or download below.
