HURM — Damon Lindelof in Talks to Develop WATCHMEN for HBO

I say … “Yes.”

Variety reports that Damon Lindelof (most recently of The Leftovers) is in talks to adapt the seminal graphic novel. Click here for the rundown.

Now, I gotta tell you, I’m not a huge Zack Snyder fan but I did like his Watchmen movie. (So call me a heretic.)

But, really, this would be the best way to adapt the virtually unadaptable epic by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons for the screen. HBO and Lindelof are a perfect match. Maybe. (Loved The Leftovers. Hated the way Lost ended.)

Can’t wait to hear more — as in whether this will be a straight take or whether it will include prequel material, or what.

And of course, it still has to happen.
