After receiving a pilot order in 2017, Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen project has been given a series order at HBO, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed. The series, referred to by Lindelof as a remix of the original story, is expected to premiere in 2019.
Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.
Originally published as a 12-issue miniseries beginning in 1986, Watchmen quickly become one of sequential art’s most acclaimed stories. The original story centers on a murder-mystery before unfolding into a planet-altering conspiracy that ultimately asks where the fine line is drawn between heroes and villains.
In a letter to fans, Lindelof made it clear that the Watchmen series won’t be an adaptation of the comics, but an original story with new faces and unknown characters introduced into the universe that he intends to remix.
The pilot is already made up of an ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Irons (Justice League), Regina King (The Leftovers), Don Johnson (Django Unchained), Louis Gossett Jr. (Hap and Leonard), Tim Blake Nelson (Colossal), Adelaide Clemens (Rectify), Andrew Howard (Bates Motel), Frances Fisher (Masters of Sex), Jacob Ming-Trent (White Famous), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (The Handmaid’s Tale), Sara Vickers (The Crown), and Tom Mison (Sleepy...

Zellweger came back from her hiatus with the third entry in the hit Bridget Jones franchise and starred in the Christian drama Same Kind of Different As Me last year and will appear in the romantic drama Here and Now alongside Sarah Jessica Parker (Divorce) and Simon Baker (The Mentalist),...

Roadside Attractions has released the first official teaser trailer for their upcoming dark comedy film The Oath starring Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project, Neighbors, Suicide Squad, Blockers) and Tiffany Haddish (Keanu, Girls’ Trip, Night School, The Kitchen). The teaser features Barinholtz and Haddish attending a family thanksgiving dinner that quickly turned into a violent and chaotic mess due to the family’s different political views. Check out The Oath teaser trailer below!
The Oath is described as a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris, a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails.
The cast includes Barinholtz as Chris, Haddish as Kai, John Cho (Star Trek Beyond, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, Searching), Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Transparent), Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods, Ingrid Goes West), Meredith Hagner (Veep, Search Party), Nora Dunn (Southland Tales, Saturday...
Deadline reports that Sky, the European pay-TV company, is currently working on an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic novel The Time Machine with Tessa Ross and Juliette Howell’s of House Productions.
Screenwriter Nick Payne (Wanderlust) and director Kibwe Tavares (the upcoming Noughts and Crosses) are both attached, though the outlet stresses that the project is in the “very early stages of development” at this point. It remains to be seen if the series will find a home stateside.
It’s possible the project is planned to air on Sky Atlantic channel, which is looking for more prestige television to add to its roster, in addition to importing series from premium cable channels like HBO and Showtime.
