It was marked by a video featuring a welcoming introduction from director Zack Snyder.
Fans of "Watchmen" and moviegoers alike can likely monitor the development of the highly-anticipated project on the net from now on. That's right, Warner Bros. Pictures turns out to have brought up a production blog page for the picture on the movie's official site.
As the first to come up, a welcoming introduction from director Zack Snyder has smoothly been posted on the section in the form of video in QuickTime format. There the Green Bay-born filmmaker discusses the excitement around the set of the flick along with a promise that he will post updates from the film's production whenever he gets an opportunity to do it.
Scheduled for a March 6, 2009 release, "Watchmen" is a live-action adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' twelve-issue Hugo Award-winning comic book limited series. Filming initially was expected to start in June 2007 but got delayed to September 17, 2007 instead with the production settling in Vancouver, Canada where a New York City backlot was built.
