Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s “Sandman” movie is moving from Warner Bros. to New Line along with several other properties based on Vertigo comics, an individual with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap.

Vertigo is a DC Comics-owned label, though Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” is the only property in active development.

Other marquee Vertigo titles such as “Constantine” and “Dark Universe” are staying put at WB. NBC recently canceled “Constantine,” paving the way for the character to appear in a Warner Bros. movie.

Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the Justice League will remain at Warner Bros., which is in the midst of building a movie universe around those beloved DC titles.

Vertigo’s “Preacher” serves as the basis for an upcoming Sony TV series from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Warner Bros. recently moved the Stephen King adaptation “It” to New Line, which has thrived making genre films.
