Zack Snyder to television? But is this the right property to do so?
Fans of Watchmen should be thrilled as Collider reported on Thursday that HBO and director Zack Snyder have had discussions on doing a series based on the graphic novel. The original movie came out in 2008 and starred Billy Crudup, Patrick Wilson, Malin Akerman, Carla Gugino, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jackie Earle Haley.
Don’t think this is set in stone, Collider says, but there is some momentum towards a series happening.
“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place”
Snyder directed Watchmen prior to becoming the head over the DC superhero universe with Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman v. Superman and Justice League. It is still unclear if Snyder would do any work outside of producing, but it is definitely an ambitious project to attempt.
