Watchmen's all wrapped up.

Zach Snyder (Dawn of the Dead 2004, 300) has completed production on his adaptation of Alan Moore comic epic, Watchmen. It was a project that spent a long time in limbo, with Paul Greengrass at one time attached to direct. That, I'd have loved to have seen. But Snyder will do! Anyone who's read the comic knows that this is going to be one hell of a difficult project to pull off, but from what I've seen so far, it looks like Snyder's got a good grip on the material. It should be a film that totally subverts the whole convention of the comic book movie. But we wont know for sure until March 09. In the mean time, here's an image of the comic's iconic anti-hero, Rorschach flambeing some unfortunate fella.

I've been following the development of this ever since snyder said he would make it. I've gone from cynic skeptic to faithful believer in his work. It all looks so faithful, so close to the source (have you seen the Dollar Bill costume?) that sometimes I think that this will be THE comic book movie to end all comic book movies.
