‘The Watchmen’ is probably one of the most popular graphic novels out there, with most people praising it. True story – it was even required reading for one of me English Literature classes in college.
When something is that loved it can be tough to do adaptations of it. Back in 2009 Zack Snyder took a kick at it and though it had it’s haters, most people agreed it was about as good as we were going to get when it came to adapting for screen.
Now, Damon Lindelof of “The Leftovers” is in talks with HBO about making a television series based on the novel’s story. Lindelof will be making this series completely independant of the Snyder film, and HBO’s previous efforts in 2004 to adapt the novel.
