PostPosted: Mon Oct 18, 2004 6:25 pm 
Okay so the movie based off of Watchmen is supposed to come out early 2005. Does anybody have any information (or know of websites that do) about it. Directors, actors,how close it is going to foolow the original. That kind of thing.

Rumors of a Watchmen movie have been floating around since 1985. I'llbelieve it when I see it.

The writer attached to the project is David Hayter, who wrote X-Men and X-Men 2. He's also the voice of Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.

Darren Aronofsky (director of Pi and Requiem for a Dream) was the last director I heard attached to the project. However, due to schedule conflicts, it looks like he's not going to be working on it. IMDB has him listed as writing and directing a Lone Wolf And Cub movie, though.

For a while there were rumors of Terry Gilliam taking a crack at it, but he said he didn't believe it would work as a two hour movie. He said give him ten hours for a cable mini-series and you might be able to pull it off.

As for casting, there was a rumor going around that John Cusack was attached to play Dan/Nite-Owl. I wouldn't put a lot of stock in it at this point, but who knows?
