No One Watches the Watchmen...

At least, not in theatres anytime soon.

According to Variety, Paramount has put the kibosh on the production of a film adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen. According to the trade, the movie version of the best-selling and critically acclaimed comic went under the critical microscope after Gail Berman replaced former studio head Donald De Line in March (a change which De Line learned of while in London, discussing possible cuts to the Watchmen budget).

Officially, the project is now in “turnaround,” meaning that Producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin were taking the project, with its director Paul (The Bourne Supremacy) Greengrass to other studios to drum up interest. If successful, the next studio will be the third home for the project, as it was at Universal before moving to Paramount. Greengrass had been eyeing a summer start to production.
