Watchmen case done?

01.09.2009

WATCHMEN There's been a promising development in the ongoing legal battle between Warner Bros. and Fox over the rights to the upcoming Alan Moore adapted, Zack Snyder directed WATCHMEN that may actually result in the film being released on March 6th. Apparently, both parties have requested an upcoming hearing be delayed because they've entered into a settlement discussion and it has so far been quite productive. Settlement talks started last week and concessions have apparently been made on both sides. What this basically means is that WB will likely be paying Fox a whole heap of money to end the lawsuit once and for all and have the move released on time. As of now, however, January 20th is still the date when federal judge Gary Feess gives his final ruling on the matter but if the settlement talks prove successful, we may be able to put this whole business behind us and see the movie the first week of March. Read Nikki Finke's take on it over HERE and Variety's HERE.

I seem...

to be the only one who really is more pissed that Fox will be getting money from a project that isn't theirs than the possible delay of the release. I hate cheaters, and would gladly shove them in the fires of hell myself, and it seems that Fox's execs deserve the lowest pit there.

Regardless of the fact that Fox responded to Lloyd Levin's letter by psting a three point rebuttal, it's Fox's past record that leads me to believe Levin's account more whole heartedly. If I ever get into the film

And yes, I'm happy that Watchmen will be coming out on time, but I'd rather Fox not get shit for it.

It's like this. I've read the book. Twice. I'll see the movie at least twice if and when it's released. I don't care either way. I'm very patient.

MARCH 6TH!

Even if Fox gets some money for Watchmen, I can almost guarantee if every fan of the novel sees it twice, maybe then Fox will break even on the Fantastic Four franchise, and WB will still have all that sexy sexy Batman money.

Even if WB have to pay out Fox a shit load of money, all of this "legal action" that's been going on for ages has just given it heaps of publicity, so that's a good thing.

WB!

After WB cashing back the major bucks from their Dark Knight receipts, it figures they will take over Fox on fully owning major rights for the project. Somethings calls out that this production should be handled by Warner.
