HBO Announces Watchmen Cast
HBO has officially announced some of the cast for the upcoming series WATCHMEN which includes Don Johnson, Regina King, Tim Blake Nelson , Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens and Andrew Howard. The showrunner also happens to be LOST creator Damon Lindelof.
Deadline reports that there will be some new “faces” to the Watchmen story which was originally written by Alan Moore. Regina King will reportedly play a character named Angela Abar. Howard will be playing a character named “Red Scare” while Clemens plays Pirate Jenny. Gossett Jr. will also play Old Man.
Lindelof also cleared the rumors that this is a direct adaptation of Moore’s story. Rather, this HBO Watchmen series is set in the world of Watchmen. It won’t be a direct sequel as well or something similar to what DC Comics did in the past aka BEFORE WATCHMEN.
No word yet on the Watchmen release date but reports are coming in that they would start production later this year.
