Calling all comic book fans!
HBO is looking at developing release a new television series based on the hit graphic novel Watchmen.
It is rumoured that Zack Snyder, director of the 2009 film adaptation, is set to develop the series.
However, don’t start looking for a Watchmen series anytime soon. “Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place,” a rep for HBO told Variety in a statement.
With the potential series still in the very early stages, there is no real idea of how the show may pan out. The opportunities are almost endless, however, as the storyline could be a prequel to the events depicted in the film, or perhaps even see the same characters go in an entirely different direction than the original.
