The Watchmen The Watchmen
In our latest article about Watchmen [read here], we announced that the film, due to budget cuts, may not occur at all. Well, thanks to a couple emails [thanks Andi], and the latest reports, that will not be the case. However, Watchmen will still have to make some adjustments for the recent budget cuts at Paramount.

New Location for Watchmen

According to a report from ScreenDaily, retold through ComingSoon, Watchmen is still in full force [semi-full] since the budget cuts. However, to compensate for a smaller budget, the first thing to go is the location. Here is a little bit of ComingSoon's update:

...There is more news about the problems facing the movie, as it's been announced that the film, which has been in preproduction at London's Pinewood Studios may not be able to afford to shoot the movie there as originally planned.

The new management at Paramount Pictures has been carefully examining the proposed $120 million budget for the comic book epic, forcing the productiong to start looking at other possible shooting locations. Producer Lloyd Levin cites the exchange rate of the US dollar to the British pound as one of the reasons for the change of location, although he made it clear that Greengrass was still attached and that they're still hoping to release the film in the summer of 2006.

Having read the Alan Moore graphic novel The Watchmen, I am standing aside a lot of fans that are hoping that this film gets made in the highest fashion. Most remember the Alan Moore flop, known as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and are praying that Watchmen finally gets Moore right. Stay tuned for updates.
