HBO and Zach Snyder in Talks for 'Watchmen' TV Series
Published Oct 01, 2015In 2009, Zack Snyder adapted Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' beloved Watchmen comics for the big screen. It was a solid endeavour, though our review explained that the original authors "actually had much bigger and more ambitious goals in mind." Now, he may get another chance at the material with a potential HBO series.
There's not much to go on, but sources told Collider that Snyder is currently in talks with HBO executives, who are considering a Watchmen series.
That's literally all we know, so the rest is pure speculation. Maybe he'll remake the original story as a series rather than a movie, or maybe he'll work through the Before Watchmen series. Hell, maybe he'll reimagine the story altogether with a new plot.
Then again, HBO might not follow through with the series at all. Still, it's a pretty exciting rumour.
