Wow! Alan Moore can't wait for the Watchman flick...


Hey everyone! Libby here, your pal from Excitable Tedium PR!!with some news HOT news straight off the Hollywood press:

I recently caught up with wacky funny book man Alan Moore in his Hollywood home. He says he can't wait for top visionary director Zach Snyder's new action blockbuster Watchmen. 'Ah me and Zach, or the Zacster or Zac-man as I call him', grins Moore, 'are having a blast, he really has nailed it and we get on so well, he made me a cool jacket with the Watchmen logo on the back and he has one as well, and we go jet-sking together and all the ladies in bikinis at the beach see us in our cool jackets, it's awesome!'

Wacky funny man Alan Moore relaxes in California yesterday.

Moore loves all his movie adaptations and thinks that if he wasn't a funny book writer he'd definitely want to be an action film maker: 'I remember visiting the set of LXG: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen that was sooo cool I got to meet James Bond (Sean Connery) we had a great time he asked me where I got all my crazy ideas from and we had a whiskey'. The hairy funny man Moore is always open to the imput of great directors like Stephen Norrington (who made the unforgettable Death Machine with Brad Dourif and the masterpiece Blade):

'What's great about my work is it can be tampered with easily by Hollywood, especially with LXG you can add characters all over the place I never thought of adding Tom Sawyer into the mix, but it was a real blast 'cause he had a cool car and a big gun, which was extreme!' Moore's keeping stum on LXG2, It's tough because things like 2Fast2Furious came out so we don't know what to call it, it could be League of Xtreme Xtraordianry Gentlemen and Ladies or LXXGL for short, we're talking to Vin Diesel to play either James Dean or JFK (or cloned mixture of both!) cause it's set in like the 1950s or 60s or something oh and Thomas Jane has just signed up to play Oscar "The Wildman" Wilde...'

Well things seem to be going well for the humble writer from Britland who now has Hollywood in the palm of his hand, what's next! an LXG/From Hell crossover with Jason Statham as the Elephant Man? time will only tell... In the meantime we have Watchmen to look forward too, with a truckload of wacky characters including:

Doc Manhatthan (Vin Diesel): a big blue guy, his perscription, blowing stuff uuuup!!!
The Comedian (Chris Katten): he'll kill ya with his punchlines!!
Rorscach (Ryan Reynolds): He's gotta wonky face and a wonky mind!
Silk Spectre (Carmen Electra) : She's one sexy superlady!!
Ozymandias (the guy who played McLovin'): A rich geek with a funny cat!!

Wait a's not like that at all, this just in from reality:

Alan Moore on 'Watchman movie': 'I will be spitting venom all over it'

For the record, Alan Moore has not softened his view on Hollywood nor its plan to bring his classic graphic novel "Watchmen" to the screen next March. "I find film in its modern form to be quite bullying," Moore told me during an hour-long phone call from his home in England. "It spoon-feeds us, which has the effect of watering down our collective cultural imagination. It is as if we are freshly hatched birds looking up with our mouths open waiting for Hollywood to feed us more regurgitated worms. The 'Watchmen' film sounds like more regurgitated worms. I for one am sick of worms. Can't we get something else? Perhaps some takeout? Even Chinese worms would be a nice change." via Hero Complex

I'm warming to the trailer a bit but the music still reminds be of the NHS std 'give me what you got' advert, which I tried to find on youtube but couldn't it makes getting an std look really cool though, more accurately it an anti-std ad but in my mind it's always an std ad.

Ha, ha, this is either the Alan Moore who inhabits the alternate universe of the Watchmen, or, more likely, Moore from the Bizarro World.
Although, in those universes, they'd probably get the film adaptations right.
