Snyder talks Watchmen

Jun. 8, 2007by:

The MTV Movie Awards was a couple of days ago but we're still getting some bits of information trickling out from the day's festivities. MTV apparently talked to 300 director Zack Snyder about his next project, the adaptation of Alan Moore's WATCHMEN, and he had plenty to say (or not say) about the recent casting rumors. On word that Keanu Reeves, Patrick Wilson and Jude Law had joined the cast: "I don't know who's leaking this stuff, but they're good." He stopped short of confirming the news but I'll take that as a hint that we're definitely not being mislead with those actors. Snyder, who says he's currently working on filming the opening scene where The Comedian is murdered, says he's also leaving the door open for Gerard Butler. The 300 actor has a busy schedule and had previously mentioned he might not be available for WATCHMEN but Snyder says "he's not gonna get out that easy." Filming on WATCHMEN is expected to begin this September in Canada and expect a big panel with formal casting announcements at the Comic-Con next month.

Snyder has a LOT of convincing to do - he's proved he can cope with crazy action sequences but not much else.
Here's hoping the film retains even an OUNCE of the atmosphere and brutality of the novel.

I have a feeling we're all going to be v. disappointed with this one, Alan Moore might actually explode..

No more . . .

Keanu Reeves! Everytime I hear him attached to a movie I automatically don't want to see it!

GET BUTLER IN THIS MOVIE!!

he'll make a great Comedian! judging from the effects of the training he did in 300, he has just the right build for the part.

FiIming In Canada?! Where

Tom Cruise would have worked wonders on the character, plus you know he's american, so we wouldn't be hearing a smarmy british ozy voice. Jude will have to reinvent his acting in a "Heath Ledger in Brokeback" way for my respect in this. Side Note: where the fuck is this filming in Canada, so I can go try my ass off to be a extra.
