Ain’t It Cool News reported a rumor that Bourne Supremacy director Paul Greengrass will step in for Darren Aronofsky helming the adaptation of Alan Moore’s classic superhero graphic novel Watchmen. The site didn’t cite a source for its information.
Lloyd Levin and Larry Gordon are producing the movie, which is still on track for a summer 2006 release, the site reported. (“from scifi.com”:http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/art-main.html?2004-11/19/10.30.rumors)
i’m damn excited, personally. i loved the “bourne supremacy”:http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0372183/, and “bloody sunday”:http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0280491/ was pretty damn good as well. if this works out, watchmen will be dark and strange. (hopefully not as split-second edited as supremacy, though…)
