Written by Sam
Hamm (Batman) based on the comics created by Alan Moore
(From Hell) and Dave Gibbons. Produced by Joel
Silver (Lethal Weapon, Matrix and
many more). Production designer : Anton
Furst (Batman). Budget : $30-40 million. Suggested
cast: John Hurt
Hauer (Ozymandias), Tommy
Lee Jones (the Comedian). According to the French magazine
L'Ecran Fantastique, Silver suggested Dolph Lundgren to
play "Dr. Manhattan" (he had previously proposed the
part to Schwarzenegger)
but this choice didn't seem to satisfy Gilliam (Brazil,
12 Monkeys). The whole production failed anyway.
Rumor is that a new adaptation script was wrote to bring back
the project into production, probably with a new director. Lundgren
would unlikely be part of it but who knows, the role is definitely
made for him.
Too bad, even without Lundgren,
it would have been a great movie!
