Alan Moore Money, Moore Problems

So I guess they've really, seriously, f'reals greenlighted a 'Watchmen' movie.
I guess a guy named Zack Snyder is at the helm. He did the 2004 remake of 'Dawn of the Dead' and just finished up another graphic novel adaptation, '300.'
Really, though, you have to wonder: is Hollywood trying to make Alan Moore want to kill himself/blow up California?
What are your thoughts, hmmmmm?

Alan Moore should just start up his own publisher.

Alan Moore is probably just a nom de plume.

Likely, he is a shark who cares very little for the trappings of man and indeed, less for anything not involving chum or fish.

I cite the inclusion of the pirate story inside watchmen as evidence.

The jury's out on how he manages to write the damn things.

Watchmen is a good comic...that much is not up for argument. Will it be a good live-action piece? If it had a Hollywood budget and the right director...sure. So, it will have the budget...hopefully big enough...but the right director? I don't know. I can only hope. I can hope, also, that it exceeds three hours in viewing so that they don't have to cut the guts out of the piece. Others have suggested it would make a better HBO/SHOWTIME mini-series. I agree...except for the budget issues. It NEEDS to be huge...and the effects need to be amazing...and you need to believe that this twisted superhero reality can exist, if only for three hours plus.

So sad for a project that's had Terry Gilliam and then Darren Arronofsky attached to end up with someone's NYU nephew at the helm of what could be a very good film.

I felt the same way when they gave Hitchhiker's to that Blur documentarian (not that he did a terrible job).

My prediction for the questionable remake...live action Akira.
