The official Watchmen website is now online. There’s not much there yet other than the familiar smiley face and Paramount lists the movie as a 2006 release.
Paul Greengrass (“The Bourne Supremacy”) is directing the big screen adaptation of the DC Comics series of the same name, originally published in 1986. Alan Moore wrote Watchmen which features art by Dave Gibbons.
Here is how DC Comics describes the 12-part series:
It all begins with the paranoid delusions of a half-insane hero called Rorschach. But is Rorschach really insane or has he in fact uncovered a plot to murder super-heroes and, even worse, millions of innocent civilians? On the run from the law, Rorschach reunites with his former teammates in a desperate attempt to save the world and their lives, but what they uncover will shock them to their very core and change the face of the planet! Following two generations of masked superheroes from the close of World War II to the icy shadow of the Cold War comes this groundbreaking comic story â€” the story of The Watchmen.
Stay tuned for much more on the movie as the updates come in.
