    I'd already knew about the Jude Law/Ozymandias but Keanu Reeves, really, come on, no clue who Patrick Wilson is. I did read somewhere that Ron Perlman was in talks for the Comedian which I think would be a good fit.

    A very interesting choice of cast. Keanu is a bit dubious, but it's not impossible, he could do it if he tried. I'm really looking forward to this movie, shame it won't be out for a long while.

    I guess it would be ok. I have total faith in Snyder after "300".

    But there is no way this movie is going to please all the fans, its just too epic of a story. While I would enjoy seeing the movie, I can't but help agree somewhat with Moore when he said his books weren't meant to be watched, they were meant to be read. Of course he'll be getting a fat check, so what does he care?

    If you have never read this book, read it. It adds a real human side to superheroes.

    Watchmen is undoubtedly a classic--but I'm with Boggs, I don't see this particular story translating well to the big screen, no matter how good Snyder was with 300. And Miller is well-known for being very involved with his projects, but Moore just sells the rights and forgets about 'em.

    And look how well it's turned out--LXG, anyone? Or the seminal work that was V For Vendetta?

    I did dig From Hell, though. Mostly for the sets, though.

    No No No!! Keanu Reeves should have no part in the Watchman movie.

    The problem first of all is that this book is too large and massive into a 2 and a half hour movie, Terry Gilliam had the right idea about doing a mini series type with it, still though I'm excited to see the end product.

    keanu's plywoodness would be very apt for the role dr. manhattan.

    also, mickey rourke, after his stint in sin city, could be great as the comedian.

    jude law as ozy = perfect.
