Holy Rorschach, Hollywood is making a Watchmen movie!
The website is just a picture of a blood-stained smiley-faced button now, but it’s got my heart all fluttery. If Sin City and Fantastic Four movies don’t turn out so hot, this is the next, great hope for comic book movies.
This comic book is one of the crowning achievements of the 1980’s and is a classic of the genre. Every collector I know owns it in multiple forms (single issues, trade paperbacks, etc.). This could be huge!
UPDATE: Precious little additional information at IMDB.
UPDATE II: Maybe Paramount will release the DVD around the same time (nebulously described on the official site only as ‘2006’) a la National Lampoon’s Blackball [via Movie Marketing Update]. A guy can hope, right?
