HBO’s Watchmen Series With Damon Lindelof Begins Production

It appears that the promised Watchmen TV series is beginning production. HBO is reportedly working on a TV version of the classic Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic book with Damon Lindelof.

Today Lindelof posted a pic on his Instagram account from the writers’ room showing a certain vigilante’s legs on a statue with the words, “In gratitude.” Fans of the comic will recognize this statue and what nefarious use it’s put to in the graphic novel.

Originally published as a 12-issue miniseries beginning in 1986, Watchmen quickly become one of sequential art’s most acclaimed stories. Zack Snyder’s feature adaptation of Watchmen, meanwhile, was released in 2009 and brought in just $185 million at the worldwide box office. The cast includes Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Carla Gugino, and Patrick Wilson.

Since the film’s release, DC Comics released an extensive “Before Watchmen” comic line, telling stories from the pasts of the central characters. More recently, DC Comics has made efforts to integrate Watchmen into the broader DC Multiverse.

HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ Pilot Casts Regina King, Don Johnson, Four Others

Damon Lindelof’s “Watchmen” pilot at HBO has set a number of actors in key roles, Variety has learned.

Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard will all appear in the series, with King in the lead role.

The exact details of their characters are being kept under wraps. Lindelof on Tuesday posted a letter to fans in which he laid out his vision for the series, which he said will not be a re-telling of the story from the original graphic novel, but rather a new story in the same world with new characters set in the present day.

‘Watchmen’: Jeremy Irons To Star In Damon Lindelof’s HBO Pilot

Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen is adding more star power to its cast. Oscar winner Jeremy Irons has been tapped for a lead role in the HBO pilot, a take on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic limited comic series. He joins previously cast Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens and Andrew Howard.

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own. As Lindelof recently noted, the project is not an adaptation of the 12 issues of the comic but an original story that remixes them.

Damon Lindelof's 'Watchmen' Series a Go at HBO

Watchmen is indeed heading to HBO. Damon Lindelof's new spin on the classic graphic novel, all-but-guaranteed a slot on the network's roster after a pilot order in 2017, has gotten a series order with a 2019 premiere in mind.

The drama comes to HBO by way of Lindelof's White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television and is, of course, based on the characters from the DC Comics property. But the series will not be a straight adaption of Alan Moore's graphic novel, previously translated for film by Zack Snyder. Instead, Lindelof has dubbed his version a “remix” of the original material, though many of the characters remain intact.

Lindelof's lengthy cast includes Regina King, who starred in the second season of previous HBO drama Leftovers, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr. and a host of others.

The network released a logline for Watchmen with the following description: "Set in an alternate history where “superheroes" are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own."

From ComingSoon.Net

Damon Lindelof Designed Watchmen as a Self-Contained One Season Series

In discussing the upcoming series with Deadline, Damon Lindelof revealed that unlike his work on ABC’s long-running mystery series Lost, he and his writer’s room crafted the nine-episode season as a self-contained story that would have a total resolution.

“Does that mean that there isn’t going to be anymore Watchmen? Not necessarily,” Lindelof said. “Does that mean that I will be working on subsequent seasons of Watchmen? I don’t know is the answer to that question. We designed these nine episodes to be as self-contained as the original 12 issues. We wanted to feel like there was a sense of completeness, to resolve the essential mystery at hand.”

Though he acknowledges the fact there is plenty of potential to keep the series going following the first season, and that it could very well happen should the audience show enough hunger for more, Lindelof describes the first nine episodes as a great enough challenge on their own that he and his crew wanted to ensure they nailed this season before they even started toying with the idea of future ones.
