Watchmen Series in the Works at HBO

wm

Last year, there was a pretty spicy rumor that Watchmen would be making the jump to the small screen. Nothing came of that. But now, we have some solid movement on that front, with The Hollywood Reporter claiming that HBO is now working on the project with Damon Lindelof at the helm.

Lindelof doesn’t have the most spotless track record (fuck you, Prometheus), but his television work is pretty solid. While Zack Snyder was initially involved in the project, he is no longer working with the studio, and Lindelof is proceeding alone. The series is expected to be based on the classic Alan Moore / Dave Gibbons graphic novel. It’s also likely we’ll see a few snippets of the Beyond Watchmen books in there, as well.
