Black Freighter On Watchmen DVD

Scotsman Gerard Butler has confirmed to Empire Magazine that the animated “Tales of the Black Freighter” supplement in the original “Watchmen” graphic novel will be shot for the upcoming DVD release of the film.

The comic-within-a-comic tells the tale of a castaway’s mental and physical deterioration and damnation as he tries to intercept a ghost freighter headed for his hometown.

“I’m going to do the voice of the captain. They’re going to do it in the style of a Japanese anime and I’m totally stoked” says Butler.
