‘Stax’ at IGN Filmforce tells us he’s posted a positive look at David Hayter’s script for the adaptation of graphic novel Watchmen. Here’s a clip…
Stax here with my reaction to the screenplay for Watchmen! This 134-page third draft by David Hayter (Black Widow) is dated 9/26/03. It is an adaptation of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons graphic novel classic. After initially being set-up at Revolution Studios, the project is now based at Paramount Pictures with Darren Aronofsky attached to direct. Hayter had wanted to direct but the powers that be decided otherwise. Aronofsky’s next project is The Fountain so there’s no word yet on when Watchmen might film.
