    :thumbsup:

    Both films are in their early days, but for fans of Alan Moore, V for Vendetta and The Watchmen are being made :clap:

    This is fantastic news, but also interesting to see how they cover the subject mater in V and also the violance in Watchmen, also V and whether he remains masked and also, my favourite, who will play Rorrscharch??

    BTW Natalie Portman is V for Vendetta :devil:

    I read over at AICN that James Purefoy has been replaced with Hugo Weaving playing V .

    I also read that there's trouble at the Watchmen camp as there has been a major change in leadership at Paramount - the project is apparently looking really promising, people are saying good things about the script and it was practically greenlit to go when this new regime took over. Now the Director/production team has to go through the motions of selling the film to the bosses all over again!

    We can only hope they are as positive about Watchmen as the previous lot were.

    "The Watchmen" has been "being made" for well over a decade.

    Don't hold your breath.

    And even if it is eventually filmed, pray it isn't dumbed down to a mindless CGI action-fest. Remember what happened to the same author's "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"?
