It was reported earlier this year that we may, just may, see an adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic Watchmen heading to the small screen, and now comes a major update on that topic.
As per Variety, HBO is looking to develop a series based around this iconic property, and the network has brought in Lost co-creator and The Leftovers’ Damon Lindelof to oversee the adaptation.
Watchmen began life back in 1986 as a 12-issue miniseries, soon going on to become a hugely acclaimed classic and a tale regularly cited as one of the greatest comic book/graphic novel stories of all time. A big screen adaptation finally happened in 2009, with Zack Snyder directing a huge blockbuster starring the likes of Billy Crudup, Malin Akerman, Jackie Earle Haley, Matthew Goode, Patrick Wilson, Carla Gugino, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
