Watchmen in March 2009

Do you remember the 1980's comics book Watchmen?
This comic book written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons was originally published by DC Comics as a monthly limited series from 1986 to 1987.

Watchmen Comic Book
This comic book was in the vanguard, no wonder it is now being adapted to the cinema.

The film is directed by Zack Snyder (who brought us 300) and is starring Patrick Wilson, Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Matthew Goode, Stephen McHattie and Carla Gugino. It should be released in March 2009.

Here the plot:
"In an alternate 1985 where superheroes exist, tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union are at an all time high. The vigilante Rorschach is investigating the murder of the Comedian, and uncovers a plot to discredit and murder various heroes. Rorschach discovers a far wider ranging conspiracy involving his colleagues' past which could completely change the course of history." (Wikipedia)

I wonder how they will manage to transpose the world incredibly full of details of Watchmen into a movie... Anyway, let's keep our fingers crossed for the film to be a real success!
