Sony Pictures Imageworks Boards Watchmen

ComingSoon.net has posted Sony Pictures Imageworks’ line-up of upcoming projects that includes Watchmen. Here’s a clip:

A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, WATCHMEN is set in an alternate 1985 America – in which costumed superheroes are not only real but have ultimately been outlawed – in which one former hero goes looking for the truth behind the murder of one of his own, but uncovers a devastating conspiracy to drag the world implacably closer to its own end. Imageworks’ Pete Travers, a longtime fan of the graphic novel, is the film’s visual effects supervisor, with Dan Kramer as the digital effects supervisor, and Kenn McDonald, who most recently worked on BEOWULF, will serve as the animation supervisor. WATCHMEN is directed by Zack Snyder (300) and produced by Lawrence Gordon (DIE HARD), Lloyd Levin (UNITED 93) and Deborah Snyder (300), with Herbert W. Gains serving as executive producer. It is based on the only graphic novel to win the prestigious Hugo Award and to be named among TIME Magazine’s “100 Best English Language Novels from 1923 to the Present.”
