Sandman: Confirming a previous report, Joseph Gordon-Levitt said via Twitter that he will work with David Goyer, Neil Gaiman and Warner Bros. to bring Sandman to the big screen. Set in a dark fantasy world, Gaiman's comic book series ran from 1989 to 1996. Other reports claim that Gordon-Levitt will star and wants to direct as well, though Warner Bros. wants to see a script before making that decision. Goyer has pitched his own take on the material, but he will not write the screenplay; instead, he'll produce with Gordon-Levitt. [Twitter / Deadline / The Wrap]

Nymphomaniac: Poking a little fun at "the most orgasmic character posters" even seen, members of the Danish National Association of Film Critics posed in a sexually charged manner for a series of photos to promote their upcoming awards show. It's intended to be reminiscent of the posters for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, which opens in Denmark on Christmas Day before spreading to the U.S. next year. [Criticwire]

Nymphomaniac

Jesse Owens: Disney is planning a filmed biography of Jesse Owens, the African-American track star who won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, where Adolf Hitler wanted to ban Jews and African-Americans from competing. Academy Award-winning writer David Seidler (The King's Speech) will adapt the nonfiction account Triumph, by Jeremy Schaap; Antoine Fuqua (Olympus Has Fallen) is attached to direct. [Variety]

Cheap Thrills Trailer: How far would you go to provide for your family? Faced with a financial crisis, Pat Healy vies with his friend Ethan Embry for cash prizes offered by a bored and rich couple played by David Koechner (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Sara Paxton. What they are asked to do gets more outrageous and bloody as the night wears on. The red-band trailer is ferocious. [Yahoo!]
