In some news that’s sure to put a smile on the face of many a genre fan, HBO has officially ordered a pilot for Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen series.
Variety broke the news, with HBO also having committed to additional backup scripts as well as said pilot. Lindelof, of course, will be familiar to genre fans for his work on the likes of Lost, The Leftovers, Prometheus and Star Trek Into Darkness.
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.
As ever, expect more on this Watchmen series as we get it.
