Zack Snyder‘s Watchmen is a very divisive film. Some seem to think it’s an achievement in terms of comic book movies, while others think it’s typical Zack Snyder trash. I find myself leaning towards the former. While the screenplay wasn’t the best, Watchmen remains one of the most artistic comic book films ever made.
Now, a whole eight years later, it seems like Watchmen may be heading to the small screen and creator of critically acclaimed TV series The Leftovers looks to be shepherding this project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this project is currently in its early development stages and an official deal is not yet in place. Unfortunately, representatives for both HBO and Warner Bros declined to comment.
Check out the synopsis of Zack Snyder’s Watchmen below:
In an alternate 1985 America, costumed superheroes are part of everyday life. When one of his former comrades is murdered, masked vigilante Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) uncovers a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his retired associates, only one of which has true powers, Rorschach glimpses a far-reaching conspiracy involving their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the world’s future.
