Alan Moore Talks About WATCHMEN

Alan Moore Talks About WATCHMEN

In a recent interview with Wizard Entertainment Alan Moore discusses his thoughts on WATCHMEN.

Alan Moore is a legend in the comic book world having written V For Vendetta, WATCHMEN, and The Leauge of Extrodinary Gentleman. He's also well known for having his name taken off the movie adaptations of his work which now continues with the upcoming WATCHMEN.

In the Wizard Interview he states he has washed his hands of any involvement with the film:

"I didn’t want to bring up any of the movie stuff, particularly because that’s a horse that’s been beat to death…

MOORE: Is this the Watchmen question?

Well, it’s a Watchmen question. I was just wondering if you had seen the new piece of art that Dave Gibbons had done for the poster?

MOORE: No. I spoke to Dave the other day. I got a piece of paper—they must’ve learned something from the “V for Vendetta” debacle. I got a piece of paper a couple of months ago saying, “I, the undersigned, hereby give you permission to take my name off of the film and to send my money to Dave Gibbons.” So I sent that back to them all signed and sealed, which means that now I don’t have to rant and spew about the film. I’m just simply not interested in it. Dave phoned me up, and it’s always nice to talk to Dave, but he understands that I’m not really interested in “Watchmen.” So when he phoned, he asked me if I was interested in being kept up to date on it, and I was saying, “Well, it’s always nice to talk to you, but not really.” I don’t really know much about it. I believe that it’s going ahead. I won’t be watching it, obviously. I can at least remain neutral to it as long as they’re taking my name off of it and not playing these silly, ultimately futile games like they were doing last time, which worked out so well for them. No, I’m keeping well away from all of that."
