HBO is currently in the works of rebooting The Watchmen! It will be written by co-creator of Lost and The Leftovers show runner Damon Lindelolf. For those of you who are unaware, The Watchmen was developed by DC comics and ran between 1986-1987. The graphic novels were done by Aaron Moore and Dave Gibbons. They were an allegory of what superheros were supposed to be and set in an alternate time line where Hero’s became outlawed. The stories followed what became of them coming to terms with civilian life and how they eventually saved the world. Pretty much everything The Incredibles stole from them.
The comics were adapted into a movie by Zack Snyder in 2009 and gained a cult following. There is plenty of adult source material and HBO would definitely be the place to get this right considering what they’ve done with Game of Thrones and Westworld, I have to say I’m pretty excited about this. We’ll see who watches The Watchmen when we finally have a release date and more info.
