HBO is looking to take another crack at tv series based on the classic Watchmen comic book series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The first project with Zack Snyder failed to materialize in 2014, but this time they’re hoping to get it off the ground with help from Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers).
Variety reports that this version of Watchmen will not be tied to the original HBO project or the 2009 film. It would start from scratch, though there’s no word on whether or not it would cover the same ground as the comics or expand into new territory. The project is currently in the deal-making phase, so pretty much everything is up in the air at this point. The only thing we can be certain of is that Alan Moore will hate the idea.
