Watch: 'Watchmen' Creator Alan Moore Makes His Scripting Debut With 'Jimmy's End' (Video)

26 November 2012 11:17 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cult comic book writer Alan Moore, best known for "Watchmen" and "V for Vendetta," has just debuted the first film he has scripted, a 30-minute short called "Jimmy's End." Like a lost fantasy sequence from "Twin Peaks," "Jimmy's End" sees James/Jimmy (Darrell D'Silva) explore a fantastic afterlife of burlesque dancers and thugs. The film, directed by Mitch Jenkins, features music by Andy Broder (Fog), Adam Drucker (doseone) and Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio). Several of Moore's works have been made into films; "V for Vendetta," "Watchmen," "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman" and "From Hell" are all based on Moore's work, though he has what can generously be described as a complicated relationship with the adaptations and has publicly distanced himself from them. The film is a part of Vice Magazine's Motherload.tv YouTube channel.  Check it out »

It's well documented that Alan Moore has little or no time for any of the Hollywood movies that have been adapted from his iconic graphic novels, from V for Vendetta and Watchmen all the way through to Stephen Norrington's 2003 The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. While anyone who has watched the last film may sympathise with the Northampton-based writer, Moore has often seemed deliberately reactionary when it comes to other people's appropriation of his work. Zack Snyder's bravura 2009 take on Watchmen, in particular, grips limpet-like to Moore's original style and narrative, yet received the same scorn as its siblings.

Now, finally, we have a glimpse of what the aforementioned movies might have been like had »
