Sources for The Hollywood Reporter say that 300 director Zack Snyder is looking for $150 million from Warner Bros. to adapt Watchmen:
Sources said Snyder’s vision for the movie would have the project in the $150 million range. The studio, on the other hand, wants to keep it less than $100 million. Snyder’s “300,” based on another award-winning comic book, cost about $65 million to make and grossed $70 million during the weekend, breaking records and surprising many at the studio.
Stay tuned for possibly more news on the project soon.
