HBO Confirms Watchmen Talks



Yesterday saw it reported that Zack Snyder had taken a meeting with HBO for a potential Watchmen TV series.

Now HBO has confirmed the news as Deadline has a response from the network.

"Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred, but we have no additional information and no deals are in place,” the HBO statement read.

The report goes on to mention the Zack Snyder HBO Watchmen meeting took place months ago and there have been no active talks since, but it's noted Snyder may not be further involved possibly due to his Batman Vs. Superman and other DC movie commitments.

Snyder directed Watchmen back in 2009, which is an adaptation of the Alan Moore DC Comics graphic novel.
