Carla Gugino has signed on to Zack Snyder’s big screen adaptation of Alan Moore’s classic graphic novel Watchmen. Gugino joins Patrick Wilson, Jackie Earle Haley, Matthew Goode, Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Malin Akerman. Gugino will play Sally Jupiter, a burlesque dancer turned superhero named The Silk Spectre. She is part of the Minutemen, the group of heroes who preceded the Watchmen, and mother to the new Silk Spectre, played by Malin Akerman.
Gugino recently appeared in a five-episode arc of HBO’s Entourage as Vincent Chase’s agent. She is also featured in Universal’s American Gangster.
Snyder’s recent comments at Comic-Con 2007 have given me new hope that this project will be made right.And that’s coming from someone who wasn’t a fan of Snyder’s last film, 300.
