Please, please, don’t mess it up

  1. Turns out Zack Snyder – the guy who directed Frank Miller’s ‘300’ is onto it.

    Alan Moore’s done his usual of pretty much washing his hands of it (saying the format of Watchmen is the antithesis of the medium of film) – although Dave Gibbons’ looks like his given it the nod.

    Given how awful the V for Vendetta film ended up you can’t really blame Alan.

    Althougth I quite liked ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ and ‘From Hell’ and given 300 wasn’t too bad lets hope Zack does a good job.

    What we really want to see of Alan’s filmed though is ‘D.R. and Quinch’ – just for the scene where the ‘clone’ of Marlon Brando is sqhished – “watch out for the oranges Marlon !”.

    And wouldn’t be nice to see Miracle Man / Marvel Man as a film ? But I suspect that really would be unfilmable (given the adult themes throughout).

    Eventually of course we might even see that film adaption of Mike Moorcock’s Elric of Melnibone that keeps getting brought up every couple of years…
