HBO's Watchmen Won't Be A Straight Up Adaption

That Watchmen series being developed over at HBO isn't going to be a straight up adaption of the classic graphic novel according to network president Casey Bloys. 

This makes a lot of sense given that Alan Moore's original book was a closed story more suited for something like a television miniseries, or a theatrical film - which we got back in 2009.

"I don't want to talk too much about it, but Damon is thinking about it in a way exactly as you describe it," Bloys told IGN. "Which is, how do you take the material and derive from it a TV show, without making it a literal translation?"

Bloys was then asked if this would mean creating additional martial for the show that was previously unseen in the graphic novel. "I think so, yes," he responded.

"Damon is one of the smartest, most passionate, most thorough writers I've ever worked with," Bloys continued, "so he's really thinking about this in amazing ways. Again, I don't want to talk about the details of it, but when you sit with him and you see the way his mind works it's really kind of amazing."

What do you think, Infinite Earths fans? Are you down for a Watchmen television series featuring original content that was never seen in Alan Moore's classic comic?

Look for more news soon!
