Watchmen TV series cast

Update: HBO has officially picked up Damon Lindelof’s new take on Watchmen, which isn’t an adaptation or a sequel as much as a remix of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic comic book series.

Our original story about actor Jeremy Irons joining the show’s cast can be read below.

The Watchmen TV series just added a surprising new cast member: Jeremy Irons. Damon Lindelof‘s HBO series inspired by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic graphic novel is set 30 years after the events of the comic, and has been called more of a “remix” than a straight adaptation. In other words, don’t count on Irons playing a character straight from the comic.

Watchmen TV show

HBO’s Watchmen TV series has been filming in Macon, Georgia for a little while now and the sets haven’t exactly been a secret. We’ve already seen some photographs of the alternate world the show is creating, which exists in the same superhero-filled and science fiction-tinged timeline we visited in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ rightfully iconic comic book miniseries.

But a /Film reader who lives in Macon snapped some new photos of the re-dressed city and what’s on display is…interesting. Very interesting. And especially interesting if you’re familiar with the source material. Naturally, these images should be considered potential spoilers until we know more, so consider this your one and only warning.

In a new letter, the divisive writer and producer has revealed that his take on the material will not be a direct adaptation of the comic. Nor will it be a direct sequel, even though it will take place in the same world.
