#Watchmen TV Series Heading To HBO

Variety is reporting HBO is in early talks with Zack Snyder to develop a “Watchmen” television series, based on the superhero comic book series from DC Comics, Variety has confirmed with the network. Snyder directed the 2009 film adaptation of “Watchmen.”

“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place,” HBO said in a statement Thursday.

Warner Bros., which owns DC Entertainment, declined to comment, though insiders confirm the studio would be involved in the potential project.

Other than Snyder meeting with the premium cabler to discuss adapting the DC property for TV, any storyline details are being kept under wraps, and no writer or other auspices have been attached. There’s currently no word on whether the series would be a prequel, sequel or new take on “Watchmen.”

Should the project (first reported by Collider) continue, HBO’s “Watchmen” would mark Snyder’s first big foray into television.

The director/writer/producer, who wrote and directed “Sucker Punch” and “300,” is at the helm of the upcoming “Justice League” pair of films, and will produce Gal Gadot’s big screen “Wonder Woman” in 2017 as well as Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman” in 2018. He also directed Henry Cavill’s Superman pic “Man of Steel” and is an exec producer on the hotly anticipated “Suicide Squad,” which hits theaters Aug. 5.

The 2009 “Watchmen” movie — which starred Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Patrick Wilson — opened big, but sank quickly, indicating that only comic book fans ran to theaters.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.
