Our Crave Online comrades at Coming Soon/Superhero Hype have gotten their hands on the first video diary from the set of the upcoming graphic novel adaptation Watchmen. This first look behind the scenes shows a great deal of the set design and a few select shots of cast and director Zack Snyder (300) at work. There is nothing groundbreaking here unless you are (a) a huge Watchmen junkie — which I am — and (b) really into production design — guilty, again.
Also included was this personal introduction from Zack Snyder himself:
“Here it is, the first of 12 video blogs that we will be releasing during the next year to give you an inside look at the making of Watchmen. We’ll launch one every month on the 6th, so keep an eye out for them as they will be premiering on various sites throughout the year. With that said…
Watch the Watchmen Video Diary:
Watchmen is directed by Zack Snyder, who previously brought us the smash hit 300. The film was adapted from the original Alan Moore / Dave Gibbons graphic novel by Alex Tse and David Hayter. It will star Patrick Wilson (Nite Owl), Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach), Matthew Goode (Ozymandias), Billy Crudup (Dr. Manhattan), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Comedian) and Malin Akerman (Silk Spectre).
Watchmen hits theaters on March 6, 2009.
