The reports are true. HBO is indeed seeking a TV series based on the DC comic turned movie “Watchmen” from director Zack Snyder.
“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred, but we have no additional information, and no deals are in place,” HBO told Business Insider in a statement.
Collider broke the news of Snyder’s meetings with HBO but was unable to learn further details about the possible TV series.
Snyder directed the 2009 movie “Watchmen,” which was based on the DC comic. It was based in an alternate universe in which former superheroes exist. The movie followed a vigilante named Rorschach who begins investigating the killing of a colleague. His sleuthing ends up uncovering something that could change the course of history.
According to Box Office Mojo, the movie was made for $130 million and made only $185 million in the worldwide box office.
