Damon Lindelof Bringing ‘Watchmen’ To HBO

21 June 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On any kind of normal day, “Watchmen” being rebooted for TV would be major news. But with Daniel Day-Lewis retiring from acting, and Phil Lord and Chris Miller exiting/being fired from the Han Solo movie, “Watchmen” got overshadowed. But, it’s still a pretty big deal.

Variety reports that “Lost” and “The Leftovers” guru Damon Lindelof is bringing an adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ celebrated graphic novel to HBO.

Damon Lindelof in talks with HBO for a new Watchmen series

21 June 2017 3:44 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Lost and Star Trek: Into the Darkness screenwriter Damon Lindelof looks just about set to tackle the comic book adaptation Watchmen as a TV series for HBO.

Related: Watchmen related news

Lindelof is currently in talks with HBO to serve as an executive producer/showrunner to bring the story to life for the small screen after their first attempt at a miniseries in 2014 lost traction. The new venture into the DC comic looks set to start from scratch with any work on the first attempt to be completely scrapped giving Lindeloff free reign to let his creative juices flow.

Back in 2009, Zack Synder took the helm on the feature length Watchmen which had a cast that included Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Patrick Wilson, Billy Crudup but the series is said to have no relation to the feature. The film was a darkly satirical and dystopian take on the superhero genre, the film is set in an alternate history in the year 1985 at the height of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, as a group of mostly retired American superheroes investigates the murder of one of their own before uncovering an elaborate and deadly conspiracy, while their moral limitations are challenged by the complex nature of the circumstances.

With HBO declining to comment thus far on the news no other details are available as to plot or format for the new show.

Let’s hope this version can at least gather some momentum, what with HBO’s previous attempt at trying to get the series off the ground, numerous live action adaptations have failed to come to fruition.  Between October 1987 and October 2005, an adaptation of the Watchmen series became stranded in development hell; Producer Lawrence Gordon began developing the project at 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros., the parent company of Watchmen publisher DC Comics, with producer Joel Silver and director Terry Gilliam, with the latter, eventually deeming the complex comic “un-filmable”

Damon Lindelof Developing Watchmen Series For HBO

20 June 2017 6:19 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Watchmen, written by Alan Moore with art by Dave Gibbons, is considered one of the greatest graphic novels of all time. Watchmen appeared on Time's 2005 list of "All-Time 100 Greatest Novels" as well as the publication's 2009 "Top 10 Graphic Novels." The legacy of Watchmen has been felt in other forms of media as well, with DC launching Before Watchman prequel series not too many years ago, a motion comic adaptation released in 2009, an R-rated animated film that Warner Bros. announced this April, and, of course, the live-action feature film directed by Zack Snyder of 300 and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice fame. Now, it appears another Watchmen adaptation is in the works, and it just may be the best venue for the project yet, aside from the masterful original comics.

Variety reports that Damon Lindelof, creator of Lost and HBO's The Leftovers, is in talks to develop Watchmen as an HBO series. HBO attempted to adapt Watchmen back in 2014, but Lindelof's version is said to be brand new and will start from scratch, not using anything already developed by HBO. Aside from that, not much is known about the project.

I may be in the minority, but I really liked Snyder's film version of the 1985 graphic novel, though it can't compare to Moore's original writing. It's my favorite Snyder project; my main gripe with the film being the fact that too much was condensed to fit a film's typical run-time (though it is a looong film). Watchmen always seemed more like a TV project to me, especially now in the era where prestige TV can be as good as the best movie. Doing each issue as an episode would allow the story to breathe, and with HBO behind this new version of Watchmen, we know budget and graphic content will not be an issue. As long as we're not adding story-lines, or using Before Watchmen to support multiple seasons, I'm totally on board!

Does this mean Warner Bros.' animated project is on hold? Are the two related? Is the studio just going full Dr. Manhattan on us and producing both?

What do you think of another Watchmen adaptation, this time on HBO? Should they wait longer to distance themselves from Snyder's film? Or should they not do it at all? Let us know in the comment section below!

Damon Lindelof In Talks To Create Watchmen TV Series on HBO

20 June 2017 6:09 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

HBO could be about to add another monumental TV series to their lineup with an adaptation of a cult classic The Watchmen.  See below for more!

Who Watches The Watchmen?  Well the answer could soon be us, as sources are telling THR that a Watchmen TV series is in early development at HBO.  Currently, there are no deals in place but the word around the street is that this adaptation would be Executive Produced by acclaimed producer Damon Lindelof.

Lindelof, whose credentials include ABC's Lost, would be a smart pick to lead the project for HBO.  He recently finished up the 3rd, and final season, of another critically-acclaimed show on HBO, The Leftovers.  With that in mind and his reputation with premium cable channel being a positive one, it would only make sense to have him usher in a new age of The Watchmen.  Additionally, he's also read the comics, »

Report: Damon Lindelof Circling Watchmen Series at HBO

20 June 2017 5:20 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Damon Lindelof may not be making a sudden departure from HBO now that The Leftovers is finished.

The Lost vet is in talks to shepherd the cabler’s long-gestating Watchmen TV series, according to THR. Lindelof would replace Zack Snyder, who directed the 2009 DC Comics-inspired movie and had been eyed to develop the TV adaptation.

Watchmen: HBO series in development, from Damon Lindelof

20 June 2017 5:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Jun 21, 2017

The Leftovers' Damon Lindelof is going right back to HBO, to develop a Watchmen TV series...

This is a pleasant surprise. With The Leftovers having just wrapped its final season to wild critical acclaim, Damon Lindelof is sticking around HBO to develop a Watchmen TV series. Yes, you read that right. Watchmen is finally getting the prestige cable drama that fans have wanted for as long as prestige cable drama has been a thing.

Lindelof's vision is apparently unrelated to a Watchmen series discussed by Zack Snyder (who directed the film version) and HBO back in 2015. It's not clear how far those talks got, or what the actual plan for it was. According to Variety, the Lindelof version is "starting over from scratch" and has nothing to do with those previous discussions.

Lindelof, of course, is known for writing the likes of Lost, Prometheus, World War Z, Star Trek Into Darkness, Tomorrowland and - as we mentioned earlier - The Leftovers.

The big question here, is just what will this new series be? Is it another adaptation of the graphic novel?

Zack Snyder's 2009 movie adaptation has its defenders, and visually it's certainly faithful enough to the comics, but it was admittedly limited by the constraints of a movie runtime. A TV series could spend more time exploring the flashbacks to the Minutemen era, or fleshing out some of the supplementary text material that happens in between the comic chapters. 

In 2013, DC Comics released a series of Watchmen prequels, appropriately titled Before Watchmen, from an assortment of creators not named Moore or Gibbons. They were met with what can charitably be described as a mixed response from fans and critics.

Nevertheless, there's plenty of existing material to fuel a Watchmen series for several seasons. Then again, Lindelof and friends might not have to delve into the spinoffs to flesh out the graphic novel. There's enough going on in any one of the original's twelve chapters to fuel multiple episodes.

Watchmen writer Alan Moore has been notoriously outspoken about his disapproval for all adaptations and spinoffs, and that's unlikely to change here. But, for the rest of us, the chance to see this series given another chance at the screen, perhaps one that's a little less stylized than the movie version, is certainly appealing. There have also been rumblings of an R-rated animated movie.

We'll update this with new information as we get it. »

HBO’s Wonderfully Odd Posthumous Promotion for ‘The Leftovers’

20 June 2017 11:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Weeks after the series finale of “The Leftovers,” HBO has taken the unusual step of making that episode available on YouTube for just one week.

It’s a wonderfully strange marketing move for a wonderfully strange series–maybe one that speaks to the counterintuitive potential a series has nowadays in an on-demand world even after it’s over.

The stunt has its purposes for ginning up Emmy nominations; HBO wasn’t able to make the finale available in time to be included in a mailing to awards voters, so this link will be tied to For Your Consideration ads for the series.

What’s unusual here isn’t that a premium-cable network took an episode that would typically only be reserved to its subscribers and made it freely available. HBO and its rivals have been doing that off and on for years, but typically it’s for a series or season premiere.

Henry Ian Cusick confirms that he’s joined Marvel’s Inhumans

15 June 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lost and The 100 star Henry Ian Cusick has revealed to CinemaBlend that he’s set to appear in ABC and IMAX’s upcoming Marvel series Inhumans.

“I play a geneticist and his name is Dr. Evan Declan and he’s human,” states Cusick. “I think that says quite a lot already, if you know the comics, you know where the Inhumans are coming from, so that’s pretty much my character.”

Dr. Declan appears to be an original character rather than someone from the comic books, and it’s not clear whether he’ll be portrayed as an antagonist, or an ally to the Royal Family. Perhaps we’ll learn more about his role when we get to see the first trailer…

Catharsis was the word of the day yesterday, at least for an hour at the Atx Television Festival.  In the ‘Too Close to Home’ panel four writer-producers talked about how they took their personal (often painful) experiences, bounced them around the writers room and turned them into scenes, subplots or episodes.  Natalie Abrams from Entertainment Weekly moderated the panel consisting of Liz Tigelaar (Life Unexpected), David Hudgins (Friday Night Lights), Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost), Robia Rachid (Atypical). Ms Tigelaar discussed her experience growing up adopted in Dallas, TX in the 1980s.  When she realized she’d been adopted, her parents told her
