Not even in pre-production and already it’s one of the most talked-about adaptations in quite some time…
The good news is here: Zack Snyder‘s "Watchmen" adaptation will begin shooting this September up in Canada. Cool. The director also insists that he’ll find a spot for his "300" buddy Gerard Butler, and when asked if he’s been courting actors like Keanu Reeves, Jude Law, and Patrick Wilson, well, he didn’t deny any of it:
"Um — you know what? I would say ‘No,’ but then you’d call me later and go like, ‘Dude, what are you doing?’ " Snyder laughed. "I don’t know who’s leaking this stuff, but they’re good."
Snyder is presently finishing up the screenplay, specifically working on an opening scene involving someone called "The Comedian." Sounds pretty cool.
