Snyder on Watchmen

It's still another year and a half (gah!!) before the big-screen adaptation of the seminal graphic novel WATCHMEN finally arrives in theaters, but director Zack Snyder is already hard at work and shooting the exploits of Rorschach, Nite Owl and company.

Snyder took a moment to give fans an unshaven greeting from the set, just checking in and promising to feed us morsels as the production rolls forward. Considering the online presence during the filming of 300, I believe him. Check out what he has to say RIGHT HERE.

The movie, based on Alan Moore's brilliant superhero deconstruction, stars Billy Crudup, Patrick Wilson, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Matthew Goode, Malin Akerman and Carla Gugino. The story involves former costumed heroes who come out of retirement to investigate the murder of a former comrade, only to get caught in a conspiracy that threatens the world.
Extra Tidbit: Regarding his work being translated to film, the legendarily peculiar Moore (who's an anarchist and practicing magician) plainly states: "To see them casually travestied and watered down and distorted... it's kind of painful. It's much better just to avoid them altogether."
