Who Watches the Watchmen?

I’m keeping my eye on that’s for sure.

Zack Snyder, director of Dawn of the Dead (2004 remake), 300, and the upcoming Watchmen, is well aware of the fan fare and anticipation for the adaptation of Alan Moore’s classic graphic novel, and has done an excellent job of feeding fans an abundance of behind the scenes footage.

Check out the official photos he’s released of the main characters.

Judging from these photos it looks as though like Snyder’s other films Watchmen will be highly stylized, but also very true to the source material. Like he did for 300, Snyder has taken the graphic novel and used it as a reference for the storyboards, which he has meticulously redrawn.

The official word is that the film concluded production in March and is currently in post-production.

Snyder also mentioned that Tales of the Black Freighter, the comic within Watchmen, will appear as a feature on the DVD release. It was originally supposed to be featured in the film itself, but was cut out due to time and budget constraints. Gerard Butler will appear as the voice of the ship captain in Tales of the Black Freighter, as he was promised a role in the film by Snyder, who had previously worked with him on 300.
