Watchmen+HBO = WE CAN’T WAIT

Watchmen TV Series on the way…maybe?

Not even an 24 hours ago HBO, the premium cable television network, confirmed that they ARE in discussions with Zack Snyder about a TV series based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’, epic, nihilistic, Nixonian and hugely influential graphic novel.
We must stress that, presently, it’s JUST discussions, nothing is set and ideas are being thrown about. A recent statement from HBO goes on to say

“Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place.” 

If it were to happen (and god, we hope it does), it is unclear as to weather it would be based on the original graphic novel, the recently released prequel series – Before Watchmen – or a completely original work set in the same world, (that last one seems unlikely though).

Considering that Zack Snyder, director of the original film, is involved in the conversation, it is reasonable to conclude that may well be a serialisation of the film/graphic novel.
Snyder’s involvement, however, is unclear as his the next few years look to be busy; he’s producing the upcoming Suicide Squad (2016) and Wonder Woman (2017) films, as well as writing and directing Justice League: Part One (2017).

Who watches this space?
