Watchin' the Directors

Sci Fi Wire has an article about Zack and Deborah Snyder, the husband-and-wife directing/producing team behind the WATCHMEN movie, whittling the flick down to running time -- and discussing the video version, which will not only run much longer, but also incorporate an animated version of TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER (a pirate comic book story one of the recurring characters in the graphic novel reads that provides an ironic counterpoint to the main narrative).

The article also features a new trailer for the film -- one that makes me extremely hopeful for the movie. It truly looks like the graphic novel come to life.

At a Loscon panel on movies based on comics, Len Wein revealed that he'd seen the movie, and that he thought it was the comic. Asked how he got to see it, he reminded the panel that he had edited the original comic book.
