Zack Snyder’s 2009 film adaptation of Alan Moore’s iconic comic creation “Watchmen” was lauded for its stylistic choices and design, even if the film itself received only a good (not great) response from the critics and at the box-office.
At the time there was talk that the comic would work better as a serialised TV adaptation. That may now be happening with Collider reporting that Snyder has been in meetings with HBO to talk about a potential “Watchmen” TV series.
Their sources say while the meetings have taken place, there’s no details as to whether it would be a prequel series, a whole new adaptation, a sequel series or a reboot.
The show is certainly a long way from a green light though, and the network has hit snags recently such as with the scrapping of two David Fincher-produced series in the works. It’s also unclear what Snyder’s involvement will be at this time.
