Aronofsky Directing Watchmen at Paramount

The Hollywood Reporter says Watchmen is moving ahead with some big names at Paramount…

“Watchmen,” the seminal DC Comics limited series, has landed at Paramount Pictures. Darren Aronofsky will develop and direct the project, which is being written by David Hayter. Aronofsky’s producing partner Eric Watson will produce with Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin. “Watchmen,” created by writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons, was released as a 12-issue comic book in 1986 and is one of the most critically acclaimed series in the genre. It is a crime-conspiracy story that provided the first realistic look at the behind-the-heroics lives of superhero archetypes.

Stay tuned for possible casting for this project.
