Who watches the watchmen?

Por el momento no seremos nosotros. Se cancela la producción de la película basada en la novela gráfica de Alan Moore y Dave Gibbons:

Plug Pulled On Watchmen Movie

Paramount has pulled the plug on its proposed film version of Watchmen, Alan Moore's celebrated superhero graphic novel, Variety reported. Producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin were taking the project, with British director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy) attached, out to other studios, the trade paper reported.

Watchmen came under heavy scrutiny in the wake of Paramount chief Brad Grey's surprise move to replace Donald De Line with Gail Berman as studio president in late March, the trade paper reported. De Line found out about the change while in London meeting with Greengrass about Watchmen and the need to cut its budget, rumored to be $100 million, the trade paper reported.

Paramount had been aiming for a summer start, but began releasing crews working on preproduction at that point.

bien por el hecho de que no la hicieron... para no arruinarla ... y mal por el hecho de no poder ver a Rorschach en la patanlla grande... ( y no puedo creer que pueda escribir Rorschach sin error ortográfico... damn comics you taught me well)
