Alan Moore's Watchmen Possibly Heading for HBO

Collider has confirmed that Zack Snyder has met with HBO about making a television series based on the Watchman. It's unknown if it will be either based on the original comic, Before Watchmen, or possible a new thing. As of now it has not yet been greenlit: http://collider.com/watchmen-tv-seri..._medium=social

Not really all that big about Before Watchmen, but I did enjoy the Snyder movie. Not sure if I'd be interested in a show, I mean. A 13 episode show would have been a better service to the story compared to the running time off the movie, even the full movie with the added Black Freighter short.

I'm lukewarm at best on this. A new adaptation off the comic would have been neat, but anything else.... Eeeeh.

I hope if they do this it is better than the movie. Don't get me wrong the movie wasn't horrible, but gosh the book just reads so much better! May just be one of those special great books!

I'll say that while Watchman is arguably Zack's best film, he's still not the best guy for the job. Not sure why they're bringing him in unless its related to his Watchmen.

Damon Lindelof to Develop ‘Watchmen’ for HBO

Looks like Damon Lindelof may be going back to work for HBO.

Fresh off the series finale of “The Leftovers,” Lindelof is in talks to develop an adaptation of the comic book series “Watchmen” to the cabler.

This will be HBO’s second attempt at developing a series based on the landmark DC Comics miniseries by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The premium channel had kicked the tires on a “Watchmen” project in 2014. Sources say Lindelof’s take on the series would be starting over from scratch independent of that effort.

Premiering in 1985, “Watchmen” was a serious-minded deconstruction of superhero comics loosely inspired by characters from the Charlton Comics library, which were owned by DC. Set in a universe in which the appearance of costumed heroes in the mid-20th Century had altered the course of history — leading to U.S. victory in Vietnam and a Nixon presidency that stretched into the mid-1980s — “Watchmen” followed a group of crimefighters investigating the murder of one of their own. In the process, those characters — including Doctor Manhattan, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre, and Rorschach — uncover a conspiracy with enormous implications.

HBO declined to comment on the project.

“Watchmen” was adapted into a feature film produced by Warner Bros. and directed by Zach Snyder in 2009. No deal is yet in place for the HBO project, which will be unrelated to that movie produced by Warner Bros. Television, where Lindelof is under an overall deal.
