UPDATE: Zack Snyder Meeting With HBO To Develop ‘Watchmen’ TV Series

watchmen06

Here’s a bit of majorly unexpected and hot piece of news. Director Zack Snyder, the man behind the 2009 film, has been meeting with HBO to discuss bringing a live-action Watchmen TV series to the network. Collider has learned that meetings have indeed happened regarding a serialized live-action version of the DC Comics classic. Being that there already was a live-action film in 2009, could this series be a sequel? Or perhaps an adaptation of the recent prequels that hit shelves? It’s unclear at the moment.

Collider did go on to state that while the meetings have definitely occurred, nothing has been greenlit yet but with comic book adaptations being as hot as they are right now, this project makes quite a bit of sense for the network to jump on. However, the network is well known for not committing to projects but with Games Of Thones coming to an end, it’s highly likely that HBO is looking for their next adult oriented hit. 

UPDATE: Well, that was quick. HBO have confirmed (via Variety) that meetings with Snyder have indeed taken place and issued the following statement:

Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place.
